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
