:: Foskor Recycles Water to Preserve Environment

One of the biggest projects in South Africa to address a single environmental issue was undertaken at Foskor's site at Phalaborwa. The Foskor Water Management Project entails the collection of seepage water emanating from the filter drains around the tailings dams, which will then be pumped back into the plant for re-use. Both the phosphate rock and copper division, and Foskor Zirconia are located in this region.

The project is described in issue 6 2005 of Mining Review Africa (pps. 40-42).
