CalAgua's permanent tailings cleanup solution can be integrated into existing infrastructure to process Alberta's 2.6 trillion litres of oil sands tailings ponds. Our additive produces clear water from tailings in years instead of centuries to eliminate Canada's most significant environmental liability.

Permanent treatment, with additional dewatering over time from gravity, weight of tailings.
Solids can be moved after settling, promoting additional water removal.
Our additive accelerates commonly-used separation methods and can be integrated into existing in-line flocculation and settling infrastructure.
