Rio Tinto Floating Module

Rio Tinto Technology and the Rio Tinto Foundation for a Sustainable Minerals Industry have funded the development of a practical floating module that can reduce water losses through evaporation from water dams at mining and mineral processing facilities by about 75 per cent._x000D_
The modules, which are also suitable for use by farmers and communities, were designed for easy deployment, to allow the water to breathe', harvest rainfall and resist wind speeds of more than 100 km/h._x000D_
A large-scale demonstration trial will be conducted at the Northparkes Mine, located near Parkes (New South Wales, Australia). The objective of the trial is to demonstrate to Rio Tinto business units, community, farming and government groups the module's operating costs and water saving potential._x000D_
