The Asamoah Research Lab uses fundamental and applied studies, advanced characterisation and sensing techniques together with data analytics and machine learning methods to:
Develop future-driven, valued-metal extraction routes;
Uncover performance-critical process limitations; and
Enhance process integration, optimisation and waste elimination

Our current research falls into one of three main categories:
Design and implementation of integrable sensing and data analytical methods;
Engineering advanced, future-driven, efficacious valued-metal extraction routes; and
Uncovering performance-critical limitations in process streams.
Sustainability through value creation from low-grade and waste resources
