Ionic Liquids (IL) to use in Mining Processes is a key research in China, Canada, USA , Australia and other Countries. Ionic Liquids processes promise to uses very little energy and water, and all solvents are recycled and reused. No waste process water is generated since the separation takes place at room temperature. ILs have been widely studied in the last few years and there is now a vast knowhow concerning the structure and properties of these materials in many industries and branches. The economization has started and the results are attractive.
The economic conditions are of interest due to the integration into excisting systems, plants and operations. Now is the time to gather information about the technology, state of developments opportunities and risks to participate in the developments
for a sustainable and ecofriendly mining. Only this will be accepted in the future.
II. Goal of the study
The present study offers a basis on which to inform oneself about one’s own opportunities and risks and to evaluate the initial situation and the further developments. Get all the information about the relevant research institutes and companies with benchmarking them. Costs, profits and outlook to 2025. The study is structured in a way that segments of it can be ordered, a summary, the total study and an update every 3 months.

V. Methods of Investigation
The study is based on the following methods: Desk and Field Research. Market potentials and prospects are gathered by the Delphi-Method. Here specialists in the market are questioned about their future expectations which are then narrowed through repeated coordination with the specialists.
Our company has been active in the field of chemical industry ,water industry, environmental and energy technology for over than 30 years. We prepare exclusive international stragies, concepts and special studies for multinational company groups, small and midsized businesses and government agencies. Until today we have prepared more than 7000 studies. We have made many feasibility studies and related work, pls see here http://www.hkc22.com/business.html
There is now a new technology for oil sand extraction without or little water and recycling. Many Countries around the world have very large deposits of oil sands including, USA, Canada, China, SA, Australia, ME, EE and more but many countries do not explorer because of environmental concerns or lack of water. However oil sand industry will have a strong grow in the next 20 years specially when environmental problems can be reduced or solved. Key problems are water and toxic waste and waste water.
Oil sands mining operations impact water resources directly and indirectly, as a result of muskeg and overburden drainage, aquifer dewatering. Similarly, in situ operations can impact the quantity and quality of both groundwater and surface water bodies (including wetlands). From lowering the levels of groundwater aquifers to the production of large volumes of waste associated with water treatment, in situ operations pose a number of risks to water resources.
Oil sands surface mining operations need extrem quantities for use in the extraction process. Between two to five barrels of water are withdrawn for each barrel of bitumen extracted.
Oil sands mining operations can impact freshwater aquifers by lowering their levels and creating a similar decrease in water levels in streams, ponds, lakes and wetlands that are connected to groundwater. Once the mine pit is excavated, groundwater levels are often lowered in the area to prevent flooding of the pits. Because multiple mines may be pumping water from an aquifer, the removal of groundwater from a large area of the landscape can lower the groundwater level in adjacent areas. This can result in reduced groundwater flows to peatlands, wetlands and other surface water bodies. These problems are known to rare earth mining and others too.
