Leading Practice Awards

Every three years, The International Network for Acid Prevention (INAP) recognizes leading AMD/ARD mitigation/prevention practice at a specific operating site and also at the corporate level. The first set of awards was presented at the 11th ICARD in South Africa in October 2018. The second award was presented virtually at the 12th ICARD.

The award win is great recognition for companies managing chemically reactive mineral waste materials and provides global recognition as a leading practice leader. The third award will be presented at the 13th ICARD and applications are currently being accepted. Please contact INAP’s Technical Manager for more information.
