Sustainable Mining Practices: A Focus on Water Security and Environmental Social Governance (ESG)

Feb 14, 2024

The mining industry plays a crucial role in the development and evolution of modern society. As we shift towards renewable energy, electric cars, and other technological advancements, the industry is actively working to adopt sustainable mining practices to thrive alongside the communities it serves.

In the coming decade, the industry will continue to face significant challenges, as governments, stakeholders, and companies increase their focus on water security and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards. It is critical to protect watersheds to ensure healthy ecosystems and to support communities by providing secure access to clean water. This requires a combination of effective technologies and tailored methods to meet the specific needs of each mining company and the communities around them.

Governments, mining companies, and non-governmental organizations share a responsibility to ensure that water is clean and safe for communities and ecosystems. Investing in new technologies can help the mining sector strike an important balance between providing the metals and minerals needed in modern society while protecting ecosystems and communities. At the same time, the industry can recover value that could be lost using conventional water treatment processes.

To ensure long-term sustainability and success, the mining industry has taken significant steps to address these challenges. We salute the continued implementation of innovative solutions that strike that balance by creating a positive impact on the environment and the communities that rely on mining activities, while proactively adopting sustainable practices and working towards a better future.

Renix Active Separation Solutions are specifically designed to help mining companies play a crucial role in promoting water security and thriving alongside their communities. Use our Contact Us form to learn more about our technology or contact for more information.

Our company was founded to develop and commercialize an innovative new technology for liquid processing in the resource sectors, whether that’s food, water, minerals, metals, fuels, or chemicals.

We take our platform and use it to help our customers create new processes that solve their problems – innovative new processes that might reduce cost, increase yield, or improve quality. They might also protect the environment, produce clean water, create new food ingredients, and provide sustainable metals. It is our goal to work with our customers to solve their problems and enable resource companies and their communities to thrive together.

On top of that, we are innovating with our supply chain at our new home at the Grove at Western Fair District, where we are currently building production scale equipment.

We are literally innovating every single day – the Innovation Award is very meaningful to our team.

We want to say thank you to our supporters, investors, Board, vendors, partners, and customers from around the world.

We want to say thank you to the London Chamber of Commerce, the event and award sponsors, and all the volunteers who help make the Business Achievement Awards such a wonderful experience. And congratulations to all of the finalists and nominees involved.

Renix Completes New Demonstration Unit

May 22, 2019

After beginning construction in 2018, London, Ontario-based Renix Inc. has successfully developed its RenixUIX™ unit to help provide sustainable solutions to capture, separate, and purify resources for the increasing needs of the global population.

Renix has developed the steady-state RenixUIX™ system utilizing the proven chemistry of ion exchange and delivering it in a newly patented platform, to achieve higher quality industrial liquid separation while minimizing required inputs.

To provide scale-up demonstration and industry acceptance, Renix built a universal fully automated demonstration unit to allow for application configuration across multiple industries. The demonstration unit incorporates full remote monitoring and control, robust 24/7 continuous operations, and modular skid mounted components that industries demand to maximize operational efficiency.

Eduardo Cordova, Vice President of Business Development at Renix, acknowledged that Renix’s project received financial and advisory support from Bioindustrial Innovation Canada has provided, through their Centre for Commercialization of Sustainable Chemistry Innovation program.

The RenixUIX™ unit marks a significant advance in Renix’s commercial growth, advertising itself as the world’s first steady-state ion exchange system that unlocks the chemistry of ion exchange and transforms traditional batch treatment processes into a true steady-state process. RenixUIX™ makes previously unfeasible separations challenges possible and existing applications more efficient and cost-effective.
