USA: Genesis Water Partners with Veolia Water

Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies announced that it has partnered with Genesis Water, the pioneer of the Genesis Rapid Dewatering SystemTM (RDS).

As the exclusive Genesis partner in the global mining market, Veolia will deploy the Genesis RDS to help mining companies improve tailings management, recycle water and reduce reliance on tailings ponds, providing a sustainable solution while meeting regulatory requirements.

“The unique technology of the Genesis RDS complements Veolia’s current portfolio of mining water solutions and provides their clients with a turnkey answer for tailings management,” said Rob Krause, CEO of Genesis Water.Our equipment provides mining operations with a tremendous capability to recover and recycle water, helping to clear out tailings ponds and increase their capacity, and ultimately, reducing reliance on ponds altogether.”

Mining operations have historically relied upon tailings ponds for dewatering of fine fluid tailings, which can create environmental and operational capacity issues. The inefficiencies of tailings ponds require mine operators to secure more land and necessary regulatory approvals to construct new ponds. Hydraulic loading in ponds and the need for eventual restoration puts stress on the environment.

The Genesis RDS will introduce a new, sustainable approach that will lower the cost of tailings management for our clients,” said Chris Howell, Global Market Director Mining and Primary Metals for Veolia. “Tailings management and water recovery are critical components of any mining operation, and the ability to reduce reliance on tailings ponds opens up new possibilities for mining operations worldwide.

The patented technology of the Genesis RDS achieves a 1:1 ratio of dredging (inflow) to dewatering of sub-micron particulates at high throughputs. The system can be operated continuously with minimal energy and maintenance requirements, and offers the benefit of immediate clear water recovery and the production of stackable, transportable solids, which can be more efficiently handled or further processed for asset recovery such as gravel, sand, and soil. This technology helps resolve many mining industry problems in a sustainable manner that meets the highest environmental standards.

Veolia will introduce the Genesis RDS technology to the global mining industry through Veolia’s extensive network of mining clientele. Through the agreement, Veolia will distribute and operate the Genesis equipment at mining operations worldwide.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
