Veolia Ghana and University of Mines & Technology have signed a Memorandum of Understanding

Veolia Ghana Limited signs a Memorandum of understanding with The University of Mines & Technology (UMAT) to run a pilot plant campaign to test the most efficient way to deconcentrate effluent water contained in the mine water management system
