Mineral Carbonation

Nicole Meyer
Project title - Completed

A kinetic investigation into the dissolution of pyroxene: A precursor to mineral carbonation of PGM tailings in South Africa
(Supervisors: Dr M Becker, Dr J Broadhurst, Assoc Prof J Petersen, Prof J-P Franzidis and Assoc Prof D-L Reid)
Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide is currently of considerable concern in terms of global warming. A possible technology that can contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions is its sequestration by mineral carbonation. Read more...

MSc Project title

A feasibility study of the mineral carbonation of PGM Tailings
(Duration: Jan 2014 to Dec 2015)
Mineral carbonation is a carbon sequestration technology that entails the reaction of CO2 with oxides or silicates of magnesium, calcium or iron to produce stable carbonate compounds. Read more...
