Cost Effective Remediation of Toxic Mine Affected Water Now a Reality
International Water Projects (IWP) and Solace Corporation, today signed a Joint Venture to explore the integration of the Solace SABR Bio-Reactor with IWP’s Hydro Technology to form a complete, self-powered Acid Mine Drainage Remediation system.
“This Joint Venture provides the clean energy solution to drive the technology to solve one of the planet’s greatest environmental challenges”, said Wayne Sampey, Managing Director of Solace Corporation. “Acid Mine Drainage has been recognized by both the UN and US EPA as the biggest environmental problem behind climate change, and effects both developed and developing countries equally. This JV will allow us to explore unique clean energy solutions in remote and difficult places to facilitate remediation and long term community sustainability”.
The hydro technology offered by International Water Projects will be driven by water flows through the SABR Bio Reactor, thus driving any pumping and associated technical infrastructure.
“International Water Projects is excited to be involved with Solace Corporation in the development of this interconnected clean energy, water remediation process”, claims Scott Paterson, Director of International Water Projects, “It creates new markets globally for our world leading hydro technology.”
