THE GLOBAL AQUATICA STORY
Our story begins with a global problem, as engineers we understand the issues of Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) with costs to the mining sector and governments running into the billions of dollars each year. AMD is a serious global problem. This unwelcome mining by-product produces high concentrations of sulfuric acid,
iron, aluminum, arsenic, and other heavy metals, which create widespread ecological destruction, water table contamination, and infrastructure damage.
Working collaboratively with industry, government and environmental bodies we have developed a solution to eliminate AMD. Since 2014 we have been rigorously testing our patented BioAqua technology, successfully operating to eradicate AMD at our test sites located in Australia.
There are two key elements which make our solution unique. Firstly, the water is cleaned to higher standards than current available technologies. Secondly, recovery of minerals and sulphates extracted during the process means we can deliver our solution through a viable economic model. BioAqua is both economically and environmentally sound.

What is Acid Mine Treatment
Acid Mine Treatment
Global Aquatica provides a complete remediation package. We will be delivering an end-to-end service for our customers which will involve a six step process:
1 / INVESTIGATE
Our Global Aquatica engineers carry out site surveys and analysis of water chemistry.
2 / INSTALL
We construct a pilot plant at our cost to confirm the BioAqua waste management service, reducing the risk for our clients.
3 / RUN PILOT
Operate as a reduced capacity full size plant to minimise initial capex.
4 / SCALE UP
Custom manufacture (off-site) and on-site assembly of full scale operation.
5 / MANAGE
Ongoing management of the water and ensuring consistent service
6 / VALUE ADD
Sale of the recyclable materials and eradicate the causes of the waste water such as tailings, waste rock and lime dosing sludge.
OUR JOURNEY SO FAR
From day one we have continued to innovate, expand and refine our BioAqua technology, consistently hitting key industry and commercial milestones along the way. Our journey to help reclaim the environment from the ecological devestation that is AMD has only just begun.
