Technical Innovation

In 2015 an undergraduate project evaluating the potential of dry processing to reduce energy and water emissions was undertaken, which has led to an MSc project started by Gilbert Ncube in 2016 which evaluates the potential for removing clay material from high clay ores while dry, using high pressure grinding rolls followed by air separation. This work is conducted in collaboration with Professor Aubrey Mainza (CMR) and Hacettepe University, and is supported by ThyssenKrupp, where the test work is being undertaken. This project forms part of new theme ‘Technical Innovation’.
