Project Description

The aim of the propossed PhD is to investigate the use of amended biochars to remediate heavy polluted mine waters and to determine the feasibility of metal recovery from the biochars. Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) in the Department of Chemistry will be used to determine the success of the methods employed and assistance will be provided by Natural Resources Wales. The long-term aim of the PhD is to develop a technique that can be used in conjunction with other methods to ensure compliance with the appropriate water quality standards.
