04 Dec 2019 Technical conference about acid water treatment using the DAS system
EDAFOTEC SAC, a member of Edafotec in Peru, organized last November 14 in the College of Engineers of Peru (San Isidro, Lima) a technical conference related to the subject of acid water treatment using the DAS system. Special guest of the conference was José Miguel Nieto Liñán, Professor of Mineralogy in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Huelva and member of the scientific committee of EDAFOTEC.
Nieto’s presentation described the innovative DAS solution, developed and licensed by the University’s Department of Earth Sciences. In May 2019, the University assigned the know-how of the patent to the company Edafotec Suelos a la Carta. The objective of this patent is the elimination of the high metallic loads within the acid waters that constantly flow in the mining operations, always in an economically viable way. For this, it uses a reactive and permeable filler material at the same time, so that after the water flows through it, the particles are retained.
After Nieto’s presentation there were two presentations by Rubén Leboreiro, director of EDAFOTEC and Antonio Lozano Souto from Geoengineering Services & Consulting.
