BIOX Operations

The BIOX ® process has been in operation for 20 years at the Fairview Mine in South Africa. The Fairview plant was the first commercial BIOX ® plant, and played a vital role in the ongoing development of the process. In 1984 a pilot plant was commissioned to treat flotation concentrate from Fairview.

Successful MesoTherm demonstration trial at Fairview

Feb 13, 2020 A continuous demonstration and scale-up trial in the 21 m3 reactor at Fairview was therefore the next logical step in terms of investigating the process operational parameters to further develop the MesoTherm technology as a process that can be effectively integrated in BIOX plants. The objectives of this large-scale trial were therefore to:
