Most Australian food waste ends up in landfill. Rotting in the absence of oxygen produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas. While some facilities capture this “landfill gas” to produce energy, or burn it off to release carbon dioxide instead, it’s a major contributor to climate change. Valuable resources such as water and nutrients are also wasted.
Pumps play a critical role in all mining operations and are, therefore, among the most important equipment in a mine. In this article, Mikael Hjelm, globally responsible for business development in mine water management at Sulzer, explains why.
A contractor needed a reliable pump supplier and service provider with extensive expertise in project planning and implementation, and one that had direct access to sufficient and appropriate pumping equipment.
Pressurized dewatering is typically suitable for sewer systems in outlying areas with no direct access to local gravity sewer lines. It solves ground water pollution problems by utilizing current pumping technology combined with modern trends in sewage removal.
