Kiraya-based Chilean innovation helps reduce toxicity in the mining process



An extract of Kiraya that removes highly toxic acid mists that are extremely harmful to workers.

People working in the large mining industry have an electrowinning process to recover the metal by separating the electrodes. Acid mist This is basically sulfuric acid suspended in the environment.

This pollution inherent in the process is extremely harmful to workers, operators, the environment, machinery and infrastructure.

In addition, it produces pollution by MP 2.5 This is harmful to the respiratory system of people working in mining factories.

But Chilean scientists have discovered it Noble traits of native Kiraya trees They reduce the environmental toxicity that occurs in the process of recovering metals such as copper and zinc.

“This is a discovery that originated in Chile, especially in the Valparaiso region, because we thought Kiraya could remove the acidic mist used in old mining,” explains Andrés González, general manager of the company’s Desert King. Created from the product.

“Fortunately, we weren’t wrong. With the research and permanent collaboration we received from the University of Pontificia Catlica de Valparaiso, we have developed a product that can eliminate all this toxicity. “He said.

Creation has already taken place Used in Codelco, Gecamines and Asarco mining plants Above all.

In that sense, executives said, “The effect of this Chilean innovation is 100% natural and has already been proven by 20 metallurgical plants in the world that depend on the effect of Kiraya, which has been used for many years by our old ones. Masu. Generation “.

The product arrived first Exhibitor 2022 The largest trade fair in the national mining industry that ended Thursday.
