In-Lake Bioreactors for the Treatment of Acid Mine Water in Pit Lakes


Article Preview

For the treatment of acid mine water an in-situ pilot plant with a self-sufficient energy supply and remote data transmission was tested in acidic pit lake 111, a small lake in the Lusatian mining district in Germany. In this paper the design of the enclosure-bioreactor in-lake system, the mode of operation of a three-stage treatment process by the use of anaerobic fixed film reactors and the results of treatment are shown.
