Reducing risk is good for business. Envirofluid chemistries reduce Health & Safety risks, and WHS and environmental compliance costs. Safer substances mean easier and more efficient handling, increasing productivity and reducing waste.
Read the stories below to find out how Envirofluid has helped mining related industries solve site issues whilst driving down costs.
Envirofluid was able to provide Rio Tinto with a worksafe organic acid blend which was guaranteed to not erode metal surfaces or create waste water treatment issues. This limescale cleaner achieved optimum descaling without dismantling any item on the system and the wastewater flush was able to be used as a road dust suppressant without further treatment.
