An Ecothore reactor.

E2Metrix Inc. has received $4.5 million from the federal government to help mining operations recycle wastewater while removing harmful contaminants.

The specialist in wastewater treatment based in Sherbrooke, Que. said its Ecothor technology cleans and separates contaminants, such as complex organics, total suspended solids, heavy metals, emulsified oils, phosphates, ammonia and other contaminants.

The Ecothor reactor is cylindrical shape and balances electrochemistry, coagulation and hydrodynamics to decontaminate the wastewater.

Its automated process includes real-time water quality monitoring, data logging, controls and guarantees compliance with discharge criteria.
