The ENERGY GLOBE Award has been held in Iran International Conference Center in Tehran and Iran took the first place in the category of water here.

According to an ISCA report, Iran jointly with Sri Lanka won the event’s top prize in the category of water here beating the other two finalists, the Philippines and Singapore.

In this ceremony, upgrade of tailings disposal and water management system project submitted by Kerman Copper Region as well as Puritas Sath Diyawara of Seri Lanka, a project aiming to providing clean drinking water to people affected by chronic kidney disease, came jointly in first.

Projects from Afghanistan, India, Austria, and New Zealand also won the first place in other categories of earth, fire, air, youth respectively. Uganda also became the world winner.

Located in a dry area, the Sarcheshmeh mine, in southeastern province of Kerman, has very limited access to surface water. Due to its geographical location and the climate conditions of the region of Kerman, groundwater is the only reliable source.

The yearly volume of recharge is nearly 5.6 billion cubic meters. However, the volume of discharge is at nearly 6.7 billion cubic meters per year. Therefore, their water balance is negative which leads to an alarming decrease of groundwater. The cathode production even increases the amount of water required for the production process. Due to the local conditions, achieving a stable and reliable source of water is very hard.

A water recycling system using modern methods could be the solution. The Integrated Water Master Plan (IWMP) has improved the consumption of fresh water through the new water resources management and a complete cycle of reclaimed water. Another part of this plan includes the evaluation of the environmental impact according to the latest international standards. Knowledge of international consultants is gathered and implemented. For the best use and maximum recycling of the water, dewatering by means of paste thickeners has been deployed.
