Metal, Mineral & Mining industries

Leading industrial energy and water expertise for Metal, Mineral & Mining industries

Metal, Mineral and Mining industries are consuming significant quantities of water for various purposes like an enrichment. The process water should be purified and handled sustainably so that valuable chemicals and minerals can be extracted from it. In addition, molten metal creates a lot of waste heat that has a huge potential for re-use. Solutions such as industrial water treatment and material and side stream recovery, can create significant cost savings, not to mention the positive environmental impact. When Adven takes care of the investment, both businesses and the environment win.

Solutions for Metal, Mineral & Mining industries

When the amount of waste heat and water is high, there is also an immense potential for cost savings and emission reductions with solutions that incorporate water treatment, energy efficiency, and efficient use of side streams. In addition to this, companies in Metal, Mineral and Mining industries can gain new business opportunities through efficient side stream recovery.

Cost savings and sustainability with industrial water treatment

Metal, Mineral and Mining industries can lower the water footprint and take care of water conservation, as well as to reduce the chemical consumption. Significant cost savings and a lower water footprint can be achieved through closed water cycles. With efficient metal and chemical recovery solutions, it is possible to reduce chemical consumption and decrease nutrient, metals, and chemical emissions.

Efficient energy production equals predictable cashflow

Energy solutions for Metal, Mineral and Mining industries are large-scale investments. It is crucial to reduce the mine’s production bottlenecks and improve energy efficiency – even in remote and off-grid locations, where mines are typically located. Energy as a service ensures predictable cashflow and efficient use of capital. Waste heat can be recovered and recycled, which brings significant cost savings and reduces the need for energy. For underground mining tunnel heating and ventilation solutions are critical to ensure safety and convenient operational environment.

New business and less emissions with side stream recovery

Metal, Mineral and Mining industries typically have large amounts of chemical side streams to be handled, as well as excess CO2 emissions and CO from production. With metal, chemical and CO2 recovery, purification, and valorisation side streams can be harnessed into completely new products, such as carbon dioxide, urea, methanol or formic acid. Side stream recovery does not only generate cost savings and result in additional revenue opportunities but also receives a better return on capital employed (ROCE). This kind of circular economy also supports sustainable development and reduces emissions.
