Department of Earth Resources Engineering, School of Engineering

Our laboratory's mission is to conduct fundamental, applied and implementation studies in collaboration with industry and government on the following topics: (i) Utilization and recycling of limited minerals, energy and water resources;
(ii) Utilization of wastes and remediation of environmental pollutions caused by the activity of (i); (iii) Creation of added values such as highly functional industrial/environmental mineral materials (e.g., Separation and purification of valuable metals from low-grade ores and urban mine wastes; Upgrading of coal fly ash and blast furnace slag to environmental purification materials; Treatment of water pollution by harmful elements).

For this aim, multidisciplinary approaches are taken by combining Powder Engineering, Nanogeoscience, Photochemistry and Biotechnology. We aim to present new ideas about resource recycling and environmental conservation technologies from the standpoint of Comprehensive Engineering, in order to realize a sustainable society.
