Water Treatment for Acid Mine Drainage

Rick Kossik -

This model provides an example of integrating chemical processes into a GoldSim model where the chemical processes are represented by theoretical equilibrium and empirical relationships developed by methods outside of GoldSim (in this case PHREEQC). The model simulates some of the major chemical processes that occur in a water treatment plant designed to neutralize and remove metals from an influent water typical of acid mine drainage. These processes require lime and air addition to the water and produce sludge.
