An Update on the Clean Power Plan Litigation (US)

WOLLAMMO!™ (Wollastonite CaSiO3) is a natural, mined calcium inosilicate mineral with unique compositional properties that deliver economic & environmental benefits in a variety of ecological, industrial & agricultural applications.

Some of the properties that make Wollastonite so useful are its high brightness, white colour, low moisture & oil absorption, and low volatile content. Until recently, Wollastonite has been used traditionally and primarily in ceramics, friction products (brakes and clutches), metalmaking, paint filler, and plastics. Its effectiveness in mitigating numerous environmental toxins released by industry and mining is just beginning to be discovered.

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

Besides many existing industrial applications, Wollastonite has been effectively tested for the removal of various pollutants from aqueous solutions at the laboratory scale. Noteably, wollastonite was successfully used for the treatment of wastewater and industrial effluents rich in CrVI.

Recent studies have also documented that the addition of powdered and pelletized Wollastonite to a stream affected by acid deposition contributes to the amelioration of the stream-water acidity, concluding that wollastonite may be useful for restoration of aquatic ecosystems that have been anthropogenically acidified.

Wollastonite has dissolution rates under acidic conditions that are comparable with the oxidation rates of pyrite, thereby it can be regarded as significant in terms of having potential to neutralize acidity. Accordingly, the use of Wollastonite might be a promising alternative to traditional liming agents to reduce the environmental effects arising from acid mine drainage (AMD).

AMD refers to acid sulfate waters resulting from oxidative dissolution of sulfide minerals (particularly pyrite) exposed in waste-rock piles and tailings impoundments, as a consequence of mining and smelting activities.
