The German business initiative „MineWaterTec“ was established in October 2009. Promoted by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology the network pools expertise of several predominantly Saxon companies in the field of raw materials production, environmental protection, recultivation and water treatment; and it supports the idea of expanding and improving professional expertise by implementing R&D-projects.

Cooperation and research in the fields below were essential and distinctive elements of the successful Network Development Phase 1 (October 2009 to September 2010):

  • Remediation of mining waters through biosorption of algae biomass
  • Method for sustainable in-situ immobilisation of heavy metals
  • Sustainable water management in active mining and mine rehabilitation

All network partners have many years of experience and extensive knowledge in the fields of consulting, financing, planning and implementation of technologies/technical systems specifically designed to solve water related problems that occur in the mining process.

The corporate performance of network partners enables realisation of orders of larger volume and wide appearance in the international market.

GMBU e.V. a non-profit research institution with three branches in central Germany acts as network manager.
