Remediation of Polluted Mining Area with Geotubes™ (BREAKING NEWS)
Remediation of an old mining area, polluted with heavy metals, in the North of Sweden, in Svärtträsk. The mine was in use between 2006 and 2008 and one major problem is an overcapacity sedimentation basin leaking zinc to the environment. The sedimentation basin was dredged and the sludge from the pond was dewatered through 27 Geotubes®. The large tubes, sacks of geotextile materials, act as filters and let water through but retain particles. In total 36,000 cubic meters of sedimentation to be removed from zinc tailings pond.
