The main goal of this book is to review the principles, development, and performances of hybridized technologies that have been used for the treatment of mine effluents.

Recent developments consist of the integration/hybridization of technologies to achieve the effective removal of pollutants from acid mine drainage (AMD) effluents in a stepwise manner such as to ensure that the cost of the process is minimized, and the resulting water is fit for purpose.

This book presents eight specialized chapters that provide a state-of-the-art review of the different hybridized technologies that have been developed over the years for the treatment of mine effluent, including AMD. The successful implementation and challenges of these technologies are highlighted to give the reader a perspective on the management of such waste in the mining industry.

In this innovative book, readers will be introduced to

* The limitations of passive and active treatment processes as stand-alone technologies while appraising the functioning and performances of these technologies when combined to address their challenges;

* The numerous approaches that have been considered over the years for effective combination of these technologies are explored taking into account their successful implementation at large scale as well as the long-term sustainability.


This book will be of interest to academic researchers from the fields of environment, chemistry, engineering, mineral processing, hydrometallurgy, geochemistry, and professionals including mining plant operators, environmental managers in the industries, water treatment plants managers and operators, water authorities, government regulatory bodies officers and environmentalists.

Elvis Fosso-Kankeu, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Metallurgy, Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, University of Johannesburg, Doornfontein, Johannesburg, South Africa. His research focuses on the hydrometallurgical extraction of metal from solid phases, the prediction of pollutants dispersion from industrial areas, and the development of effective and sustainable methods for the removal of inorganic and organic pollutants from polluted water. He has published more than 220 papers including journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceeding papers. He has won several research awards including the NSTF Award (National Science and Technology Forum: largest science, engineering, technology, and innovation awards in South Africa and are known as the "Science Oscars" of recent times) Engineering Research Capacity Development, in 2019.

Bhekie B. Mamba, PhD, is the executive dean of the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology, University of South Africa. Prof Mamba is a visionary and has occupied a number of leadership positions including being a Professor and Head at Department of Applied Chemistry at the University of Johannesburg, and the Director of the Institute of Nanotechnology and Water Research at the University of Johannesburg. He has published about 7 book chapters, over 250 journal papers, about 12 technical reports, and over 50 conference proceedings. His general research interest involves developing advanced technologies for water treatment, which include nanotechnology and membrane technology.
