Outotec® Thickened Tailings and Paste Plant

Reclaim process water efficiently and store your tailings in an efficient way. The technology of the Outotec Thickened Tailings and Paste Plant is a novel way to handle and store tailings from various processes like mine concentrators and other processes that produce tailings. As a result, the plant reduces the footprint and environmental risks of your tailings storage facility. It also enables the efficient recovery of process water and saves energy by reducing slurry and water pumping.

  • Handles tailings more efficiently with a smaller footprint
  • Efficient handling of fine tailings
  • Minimizes environmental risks
  • Results in less seepage from the tailings area and minimal segregation
  • Saves energy with reduced slurry and water pumping
  • Simplifies mine closure for many applications
