A peat-humic agent (PHA), derived by mechanical, chemical, and thermobaric treatment of peat from the Krugloe deposit (Novosibirsk region, Russia), is a good sorbent for potentially toxic elements, and can be used to neutralise acid mine drainage (AMD). A new AMD remediation method has been developed using this PHA with subsequent solid/liquid separation using haydite sand or activated carbon.
