Clacione de Oliveira is Superintendent Director of the mine in Minas Gerais. She explains why the mine has chosen to collaborate with ANDRITZ and what advantages the new process offers:
“Using ANDRITZ filter presses gave ITAMINAS the motivation and energy to operate in a safe, innovative and sustainable manner.
“Eliminating the deposition of tailings in the containment dams was my biggest dream, and in February 2021, this dream came true.
“Furthermore, we were able to recover more than 90% of all the water in the system, contributing towards conscious use of this asset, which has become increasingly scarce.
