Global dry-stacked tailings projects at large mining sites are the most important field of application for equipment made by Diemme Filtration, a leading manufacturer of large, high-performance filters.
The company has taken a major step forward in this area with the development in 2021 of the GHT5000F Domino filter press, which is set to revolutionise the mining tailings dewatering market. At the same time as introducing this new model to the market, Diemme has embarked on an ambitious project to expand its production facilities in order to cope with the constant growth in demand for its innovative technologies.
The planning of the new factory, which in terms of size, technology and environmental standards represents the state of the art in the industry, lasted about a year and construction work finally began this week at the Lugo site (Italy). This important development will allow Diemme to multiply its current production capacity and meet its future commitments, which include the realisation of numerous challenging filtration projects already in the pipeline.
Even the city’s Mayor, recognising the importance of the investment, announced the approval of the expansion project by the Lugo City Council in a post published on the main social media on 16 December, recognising its great value for the local community and underlining the local administration’s willingness to support the area’s industrial excellence.
The plan is to complete the work by the third quarter of 2023.
