Zero Quicklime by Swampy Forest
One of the big challenges in coal mining is how we treat the mine waste water. Mostly the water is acid. We need to treat the water with quicklime to comply with regulation before release to Public River. To treat the acid water with quicklime is expensive and uncertaintly process.
Swampy Forest is one of the new mine water management to increase the pH from mostly 4 to be 6 until 9 as compliance criteria by naturally process.
The Swampy Forest is a constructed wetland by cobinying three best materials of organic matter, planting grass and planting trees.
The water from Void flow the water enters the swampy Forest system and increases the pH. When the water come pH is 4, the system will release average pH 7 with debt of water flow is average 1000m3/day without any quicklime anymore.
Another benefit of this project is integrated the waste mine water management with reclamation project to prepare in advance to meet success criteria of reclamation.
