About this event

Our teams design, deliver, monitor and service drinking water or wastewater treatment plants as well as smaller standardized water treatment equipment for industrial or municipal customers.

We can tackle a vast array of water problems and our aim through sponsoring this AusIMM technical talk is to create awareness of the vast array of services we can offer to help mine sites deal with their water restrictions.

As a team we will introduce our technology portfolio and the benefits of application in mineral processing.
