Resource Recovery and Remediation of Alkaline Wastes

University of Hull, and Universities of Leeds, Oxford and University College London

This research brings together an interdisciplinary team alongside industrial partners to develop a unique initiative combining resource recovery (e.g. e-tech metals that are crucial for modern environmental technologies) from caustic industrial wastes with environmental remediation and waste stabilisation. We will combine expertise in biogeochemistry and remediation of highly alkaline waters with expertise in waste/environmental policy and stakeholder engagement. Our goal is to deliver a new environmentally-sensitive technology that is ready for use by our industrial partners
