EKS-DT reduces the demand on fresh water sources by increasing the water available for reuse and decreases the disturbed land footprint from tailings handling, storage, and disposal.
The EKS-DT process is clearly environmentally superior to current technologies on all counts:
- Less fugitive GHG emissions
- The process can be operated by renewables (i.e. no GHG emissions)
- Immediate progressive reclamation of tailings
- Immediate elimination of legacy tailings inventory
- No EPLs (End-pit Lakes)
- Less water use
