Drilling & Mining Polymer




Drilling & Mining Polymer

Super absorbent polymer (SAP) based products play a key role in the development of oil and gas by allowing drilling crews to rapidly solidify drilling fluid waste (drilling mud and drill cuttings) as it is generated.

SOCO® Polymer can be Drilling Fluid/Drilling Mud Additive, which is suitable for plumb shaft, horizontal well, deep shaft, etc. When compared to commodity absorbents and cement products, SOCO® Polymer' s superior liquid absorbency and retention help oil and gas companies minimize waste disposal costs, treatment time and environmental impact.

SOCO® Polymer for Stabilization & Recovery

Are you concerned about toxic waste water or sludges from your mining operations? SOCO® Polymer can solidify and stabilize the remaining sludges and slurries for safe and environmentally-friendly disposal.

Mining operations can generate several different types of waste streams:

• Sump pits

• Tailings

• Coal ash pits

• Wash slime waste

• Minerals refinement fractions

Often these waste streams need solidification and binding of free liquids in order to be transported to a licensed disposal facility. Conventional sorbents – sawdust, lime kiln dust, corn cob – normally expands the waste volume by 50-100%. This greatly increases disposal costs in terms of higher transportation costs due to more loads and, of course, higher landfill disposal fees. The use of SOCO® Polymer allows waste generators to meet EPA 9095 (Paint Filter Test) requirements with <1% expansion!
