Mining waters are often heavily contaminated with anionic and cationic species. Among the most prevalent and harmful compounds are toxic metals and anionic contaminants, such as sulphate, nitrate, chloride and cyanide. It is essential to treat discharged waste waters and bring the concentrations of harmful dissolved contaminants to acceptable discharge levels. Another mining wastewater management concept is to re-use and recycle water within the process sections. Firstly, it makes the mining operation more economically and environmentally feasible. Secondly, it allows for treating water only to a level suitable for a certain process rather than to an acceptable discharge level. At different operating stages, electrochemical treatment can be considered as a promising solution to remove harmful contaminants.


During the webinar you will understand what electrochemical treatment is all about, how researchers and industry are developing and implementing the technology, and what is needed to bring electrochemical technology to the industrial level.

The webinar consists of two parts, the first part is a talk containing theoretical aspects and practical experience on the electrochemical treatment of mining waters, and the second part consists of discussion of the topic addressed.

Target audience

The webinar is aimed at: researchers, students in the final stages of their PhDs and Post-Docs, professionals interested in learning about electrochemical treatment of mining waters.


Maria Mamelkina (MSc. Tech., MSc. Ed.) has six years of experience in the electrochemical treatment of industrial waters. Together with globally recognised partners she has published several papers on the removal of contaminants from wastewater by electrochemical technology.
