The PDAC offers unparalleled opportunities to engage with the global mining and exploration community and stay abreast of the latest trends and technologies driving the sector, thanks to its comprehensive programming. Forward Water is excited in the increased growth of our patented industrial forward osmosis (iFO™) technology in global markets, signaling increased acceptance of thermal evaporation technology replacement with iFO™. The ability to extract and deliver up to 95% clean water for process reuse and the concentrating of critical minerals such as lithium >20X have been the main drivers in our market growth, while the ability of iFO™ to be operated with alternative energy sources such as geothermal and solar thermal has aided in our growth as well. Mr. Grant Thornley, Vice President of Engineering Solutions commented, "Participating in PDAC is a great opportunity for us in learning and discussing the needs and challenges of the DLE and mining markets and how we can deliver solutions to them".
