Ammonia-Reduction

Mine & Mill Water

ECOTHOR™ is a unique, patented electrolysis process for the safe, effective and affordable removal of various toxic chemicals from mine water contaminated by normal blasting operations and from mill water contaminated by typical mineral processing. The ECOTHOR reactor can be operated in a bank of multiple reactors to treat wastewater discharge flows in the thousands of m3 per day. ECOTHOR can operate in three different modes: electro-coagulation, electro-disinfection and electro-oxidation to target removal of contaminants including:

  • Ammonia nitrogen
  • Suspended solids
  • Metals (ex. Zn, Fe, Cu, Ni, Se, As, etc.)
  • Cyanides, Thiocyanates, etc.
  • Long-chain hydrocarbons
  • Phosphorus
  • Pathogens/bacteria (ex. membrane fouling)
  • And more…

The E2metrix advantages

  • Multiple contaminants removed simultaneously (high efficiency)
  • Competitive CAPEX, low cost of ownership
  • Service contract available
  • Fully automated with remote operation on multiple platforms
  • Simple-to-operate and easy-to-maintain
  • On/Off Capabilities vs biological processes
  • Compact & modular – small footprint – containers available
  • No moving parts.

Removal Efficiencies – Mining

Total Ammonia Nitrogen 70-98%
Un-ionized ammonia > 99%
Cyanides > 95%
Thiocyanates > 99%
Total Suspended Solids 85-99+%
Ni > 99%
Zn > 99%
Cu > 95%
