Complete WWT Strategy


UCC offers sustainable wastewater treatment (WWT) solutions specifically designed for mining and heavy industrial applications. Our goal is to ensure compliance with site-specific discharge requirements. We have extensive capabilities in various areas of wastewater treatment, including freshwater import, groundwater from wells for both production processes and pit backslope dewatering, reclaimed water from tailings storage facilities, surface runoff, and acid rock drainage.

Our expertise extends to active, dormant, and abandoned mines in the United States, providing end-of-life mine water management design, operation, and maintenance services for active mines to ensure eventual closure and post-closure mine reclamation. Additionally, we offer proprietary WWT chemicals, mobile equipment rental, pond closure, landfill leachate treatment, low-volume WWT, and wet flue gas desulfurization WWT services.

With an extensive portfolio of systems, products, and services backed by a long history of successful operating systems within the mining, power generation, and industrial industries, UCC Environmental provides a complete WWT strategy. We offer best-in-class project management, system integration engineering, proven WWT process design, high-performance OEM equipment, post-commissioning services, and support. Our century of experience in serving heavy industrial installations adds to our credibility and expertise in the field.
