Borregaard provides sustainable, specific solutions for mineral beneficiation processes.
Pionera Reagents Improve Mineral Processing
Heavy media separation
In gravity separation, the Pionera® biopolymers achieve higher recoveries and improve plant efficiency.
The addition of our products increases milling efficiency, providing finer particle sizes.
Electrowinning and electro-refining
Sustainable Pionera products are crystal growth modifiers and smoothing agents, allowing for better metal deposition on cathode plates.
Pionera biopolymers reduce gypsum and calcite scale deposition in reactors and pipelines.
Self-heating ore inhibitors
Pionera products minimise the atmospheric oxidation of sulfide ore concentrates, avoiding dangerous overheating in handling, storage and transportation.
