Selenium Water Treatment Envirogen Technologies

In selenium water treatment, selenite and selenate are reduced to insoluble selenium that is removed along with biomass and feed suspended solids by downstream liquid/solids separation. This process is effectively used for selenium removal from mining wastewater and other difficult industrial applications.

Selenium removal from mining and process wastewater: a

The main source of selenium in mining operations is waste rock. Selenium species leach or migrate to the environment from the rock when it is exposed to water. More frequently, selenium occurs in the soluble form in mine runoffs. Its concentration in mining wastewaters ranges from 3 to 12,000 μg/L (Sandy & DiSante 2010). At open mines, huge

Linking Selenium Sources to Ecosystems: Mining

Waste rock is generated at a rate of 2.5 to 5 times that of mined ore. Individual dumps contain 6 to 70 million tons of waste-rock that is either contoured into hills, used as cross-valley fill, or used as back-fill in mine pits. Waste shale in comparison to ore, is more enriched in selenium (80 ppm Se v. 50 ppm Se).

Examination of multiple sources of selenium release from

Selenium (Se) has been mobilised by leaching from coal and associated waste rock exposed by mining activities in Western Canada, with deleterious impact on aquatic wildlife. Waste rock characterisation indicates that up to 7% of the Se, as Se(IV), may be associated with organic matter, with ≈9%, as Se(0), associated with euhedral pyrite.
