'DEAD' RIVERS BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE
Engineering Designer 44(4):12-15(2018)

Swansea-based Power & Water (P&W), commissioned by Natural Resources Wales at the Cwm Rheidol mine, demonstrated the innovative and patented Soneco (Sono-electrochemical) technology for effective treatment of acid mine drainage. A trial of the technology was conducted at one of the UK's top 5 most-polluting abandoned metal mines, where very high metal concentrations enter the River Rheidol in the mine's discharge water. P&W successfully removed up to 99.5% of Zn, Pb, Fe, and Cd while simultaneously reducing other metal concentrations with high reduction rates.
