The mining industry is getting more attracted to developing water treatment technologies. The ease with which technology is brought from lab to industrial scale, along with minimizing the time consumption and costs, is influenced by several factors. Some of these depends on the reactor, removal mechanisms, volumes and operating conditions. While others are affected by external factors such as maximum size of the equipment, treatment costs of established or alternative technologies. Scale-up is mainly employed to see if the technology meets the market requirements and expectations. This study focuses on transferring an electrocoagulation process from lab scale to pilot plant.
