Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO)


Emerald, Queensland


With poor rainfall over a number of wet seasons in recent years affecting local water supplies, a Queensland coal mine decided to assess how they could make better use of their mine effected water resources on site. The solution was to recycle unused wastewater bodies on site to maintain security of their water supply.

The available water was high in Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and organics that needed to be removed prior to reuse. MAK Water was engaged to deliver a fit for purpose water treatment plant incorporating media filtration, activated carbon and reverse osmosis to produce water that was suitable to be used as process water.
