Abstract
Acid mine waters (AMWs) are characterized by a low pH, high concentrations of transition metals (iron, copper, zinc), and the presence of highly valuable metals such as rare earth elements (REE) at lower concentrations. Sustainable management of AMW implies the reduction of acidity and Fe/Al concentrations and the recovery of valuable metals by ion-exchange processes. Nanofiltration (NF) offers a good opportunity compared to conventional methods to treat AMW, such as good passage of mono-charged...
