Chilean mining company SCM Minera Lumina Copper Chile has awarded French company Degremont a contract to supply a mobile water treatment unit.

A OMOBILE Reverse Osmosis (RO) unit will be supplied to treat 50 m³/hour with the objective to treat water from the Caserones copper-molybdenum project in Chile's northern region.

The wastewater will be treated by the mobile membrane unit to a quality water lower than 0,1μs/cm, before being discharged, in compliance with the Chilean regulations.

The unit uses membranes followed by polishing using resins for demineralized water production, for flow rates of 5 m³/hour and above.
