Research Assistant (DEMINE Project)

Swansea University - Engineering

The main objective of the LIFE DEMINE (LIFE16 ENV/ES/000218) project is to demonstrate and disseminate the technical and economic feasibility of decreasing the overall environmental impact caused by abandoned mine effluents in water bodies. This will be done by adopting an innovative and versatile treatment process that will include existing and widely known technologies based on membrane processes and electrocoagulation, with the global aim of obtaining a non-polluting final effluent.

The main result expected after the execution of the DEMINE project is to produce a significantly improved mine effluent to be discharged in water bodies with minimal environmental and ecological impact, being in line with the Water Framework Directive and the EU Biodiversity Strategy objectives. The treatment process will be tested during site deployment in two locations, Wales and Germany, and a significant body of results will form the basis of a full life cycle assessment to demonstrate process efficiency, cost and future potential

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Darren Oatley-Radcliffe at d.l.oatley@swansea.ac.uk
