Die Industrial and Mining Water Research Unit (IMWaRU - Industriële en Mynbou Waternavorsingeenheid) is 'n navorsingsgroep gebaseer in die Skool vir Chemiese en Metallurgiese Ingenieurswese aan die Universiteit van die Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.[1]

Eenheidstruktuur[wysig | wysig bron]

Die eenheid doen navorsing oor kruisdissiplinêre waterkwessies wat verband hou met die nywerheid en mynbou. Die groep bestaan uit deskundiges in chemiese ingenieurswese, mikrobiologie en ander wetenskappe.

Samewerking[wysig | wysig bron]

Die eenheid spesialiseer in waterprobleme wat verband hou met nywerheid en mynbou.[2]

Die lede van die groep het aanbiedings gelewer by:

  • Water in Mining 2014 (Viña del Mar, Chile);[8][9]
  • Water Institute of Southern Africa 2014 (Mbombela, Suidafrika)[10][11][12] en meer.
  • Hydrometallurgy 2016 (Kaapstad, Suidafrika), [27]
  • International Conference on Environment, Materials and Green Technology (Sebokeng, Suidafrika
  • International Conference on Sustainable Materials Processing and Manufacturing (SMPM 2017) (Skukuza, Krugrer National Park, Suidafrika)[28]

Navorsing[wysig | wysig bron]

Die groep het 'n wye verskeidenheid van navorsingspublikasies in die temas hieronder gepubliseer:
