BENCH TO BUILD: DEVELOPMENT OF A NON-BIOLOGICAL SELENIUM TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY
Littlejohn, P. | Technical Sessions: Smart Mining: Resources for a Connected World, 24-27 Feb 2019, Denver, Colorado. p 40, 2019

Selen-IX™ treatment technology was developed to remove selenium from mine-impacted water. The treatment process combines ion exchange and electrochemistry. Beginning in 2012, development of the technology has entailed four pilot campaigns, thousands of engineering design hours, multiple regulator and third-party technical reviews, and an industrial-scale demonstration. The first full-scale Selen-IX plant currently is under construction at a mine site in British Columbia, Canada, slated to begin operation in 2019. A description of the technology is available in a paper presented in 2014: https://www.bqewater.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/BioteQ-2014-Hydromet.pdf.
