Mining waste - Environment - European Commission

Waste from extractive operations (i.e. waste from extraction and processing of mineral resources) is one of the largest waste streams in the EU. It involves materials that must be removed to gain access to the mineral resource, such as topsoil, overburden and waste rock, as well as tailings remaining after minerals have been largely extracted from the ore.

Furthermore, bioflocculant was applied to treat pilot-scale (30 L) of mineral processing wastewater for the first time, and the removal rate of 92.35% was observed when 9 mg/L bioflocculant was added into wastewater. Therefore, this study could promote the resource utilization of kitchen waste and recycling of mineral processing wastewater.
