THE Sustainable Engineering Group at Curtin University has demonstrated that red sand can be a viable and sustainable material for road construction and top dressing.
RESEARCH exploring the Asia Pacific region with a Global Energy Market model (GEM) has assessed the challenges and opportunities as population, income and energy demand continue to increase.
WA’s ChemCentre has begun a research initiative to further understand and curb Acid Mine Drainage (AMD), one of the leading environmental concerns produced by mining and development sites.
MURDOCH University scientists have created a technique using microfluidics which could revolutionise how resource companies recover high-value precious metals, making the process faster and cheaper.
LICHEN could prove to be an affordable alternative to traditional biomonitors used to detect atmospheric heavy metals, following research in WA’s South West.
A GROUNDBREAKING study has shown by-products from mining and mineral processing could provide a cost-effective solution for water treatment, as Western Australia tries to find an answer for stockpiling mining by-products.
PRELIMINARY laboratory studies have demonstrated that the HIsmelt steel-making by-product has potential for neutralising soil acidity, providing its leachate pH is diluted enough to mitigate the risk of toxicity to the environment.
RECENTLY published research has given insight into the uses and performance of sulphur impregnated activated carbons (SIAC) in mercury adsorption.
