PFAS Water Treatment Plant – Mining
Western Australia Confidential Mining Client Current
SciDev engaged in the Design, construction, and operation of a water treatment plant (WTP) capable of treating 260ML of PFAS contaminated water for re-use onsite at a Confidential Mining Site in Western Australia.
The mining site produced low level detections of Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). A permanent treatment, disposal and discharge solution was required to ensure any PFAS affected operational water is not released to the environment and will provide the most practical and economical use of the water to operate at site.
Treated 260ML of PFAS contaminated water in six months.
The discharge criteria for the system required total PFAS removal down to 0.0002µg/L.
This is the only PFAS water treatment plant of this scale, in Australia that currently treats to beneath the 99th percentile level of ecological protection under the Australian and New Zealand Environment and Conservation Guidelines (ANZECC) for discharge to the environment.
The plant’s construction and commissioning were completed in less than 40-days from the contract award to meet operational requirements on site.
The water treatment plant is required to operate 24/7 and process 2.5ML/day.
