Metallurgical engineering
Creating new products from waste

Creating new products from waste, cutting down on water usage, maximising energy efficiency – our research focuses on designing innovative engineering solutions that are as environmentally responsible as possible.

Focus areas

Hydrometallurgy
Developing hydrometallurgical processes including base metals, precious metals and Bayer alumina processing.
Minerals processing
Designing innovative processes that minimise solid waste and water usage, and maximise energy efficiency.
Pyrometallurgy
Driving research outcomes in non-ferrous and ferrous metal smelting and refining, recycling, and coal utilisation.
