Declining ore quality, increased demand and growing competition have made increased recovery and plant optimization more important than ever before. There is no “one size fits all” solution to the challenges facing the industry, as mining and processing operations differ significantly based on various factors including rock composition and plant configuration.

 

Solvay leverages its unique chemistry platforms, applications expertise and on-site technical support to develop tailored solutions that help its customers improve yields, optimize plant operations and/or lower production costs.
