Treatment of mining effluents
Uranium mining in Eastern Germany and Czech Republic was done in the past by leaching with sulphuric acid, nitric acid and ammonia.
This resulted in extremely acidified rocks that endanger groundwater by acid, heavy metals and radioactive elements.
Neutralac® Q can be used to solve these problems. It helps treating the acidification and prevents leaching of heavy metals.
