Environmental Solutions Expomina 2012
September 15, 2012
Prodac’s Environmental Solutions Unit was present at EXPOMINA 2012. This event took place on September 12-14 at the Jockey Club Convention Center. EXPOMINA is the largest specialized mining fair in Lima. This year, more than 28 000 people attended the event in search of business and development opportunities in the mining sector.
As part of their environmental management efforts, many mining companies build containment structures that are known as gabion-based sedimentation dikes. These structures collect a large amount of sediment, which prevents damage to flora and fauna in water environments; controls erosion; and prevents sediments and soil from reaching rivers. Waste management is imperative in the mining sector. Geosynthetic technology offers solutions to prevent contamination of subterranean waters and the indiscriminate use of non-renewable materials. This is the reason why the Environmental Solutions Unit was present at the event.
Prodac is consolidating its leadership in this segment by offering reliable solutions for erosion control.
