Mining chemicals play a vital role in enhancing the productivity and efficiency of mining processes, such as extraction, recovery, water treatment, transportation, and general equipment maintenance. Univar Solutions provides an unparalleled portfolio of mining chemicals across the production life cycle, including frothers, flocculants, leaching agents, extractants, antiscalants, dispersants, filter and dewatering aids, and more.
We serve all major phases of the mining life cycle:
- Production – From dust and erosion control to lubricants and water treatment, we work with you to determine the right chemistries for this important phase and throughout the remainder of the life cycle as your mining needs change.
- Processing – We support the recovery of your total mining process and understand your need to transport 24/7/365. That's why we provide technical resources and specialized chemistries, such as antifreeze agents, dust control, collectors, frothers, pH modifiers, depressants, antiscalants, flocculants, coagulants, and others. We also provide the logistics know-how to guide the safe recovery, processing, and transportation of minerals and metals from the mine to ready them for commercialization.
- Commercialization – For the capital invested to beneficiate the mined product, we work in partnership with you to load and ship the mined product with dust control, anticaking freeze conditioning, and the shipping and packaging requirements associated with each.
- Reclamation – To dismantle facilities and when returning a mine to its former safe and stable state, Univar Solutions provides a suite of reclamation chemistries, including waste management, water treatment, erosion protection, and vegetation chemistries.
