Mineral processing is concerned with the extraction of valuable minerals and metals from orebodies. A range of physical and chemical techniques are employed depending on the ore/mineral. Our facilities are equipped to conduct research to better understand how mineral particles can be recovered efficiently, which is crucial in our needs of critical minerals and the electrification of our society.
The work conducted in our facilities is related to transformative technologies. Our laboratories house standard equipment as well as custom-built equipment to study 3-phase phenomena. Much of the work is concerned with understanding bubble-bubble and bubble-particle interactions.
