Outline

This is a 3.5 Year PhD project sponsored by the College of Physical Sciences and Engineering and VITO, Belgium.  

This PhD seeks to:

  • further develop appropriate lixiviants for application to waste
  • develop low-intensity metal capture systems that work with the lixiviant/waste chemistry.

The proposed PhD is hosted both by VITO (Belgium), in particular the Waste Recycling Technologies team, and the School of Engineering at Cardiff University.
