Modern mining and industry has made great strides in recent years in terms of pollution minimisation - but more can be done. Contaminants in industrial runoff and mining tailings - such as volatile organic compounds, amines, oxides of metals etc. - can be better removed with the help of activated carbon filtration.
Desalination requires a lot of contaminants to be removed for it to be a viable process. Anthracite and process expanded clay can provide effective, long-term filtration solutions.
