M.Earth.Sci. Earth Sciences (Geochemistry)
Sul completed an Integrated Masters degree in Earth Sciences (MEarthSci) at the University of Manchester specializing in Geochemistry. A keen interest in Economic Geology and Ore Mineralogy led him to return to Manchester to complete a Ph.D. in Environmental Geochemistry and Geomicrobiology, studying cobalt, nickel and manganese mineralogy and biogeochemistry in lateritic deposits. He has taught undergraduates Geochemistry, Mineral Deposits, Ore Mineralogy and Microscopy, mentored Ph.D. and MSc students and performed experiments at the UK Synchrotron at Harwell.
His most recent research has included biosynthesis of magnetic nanomaterials used in industrial waste remediation and metal recovery.
Studies on the applications of graphene are multiplying due to its properties as a lightweight, strong, porous and electrically conductive material.
Some devices require semiconductor materials with elements from the “metalloid staircase” (located across groups 13, 14 and 15 of the periodic table).
There are numerous types of asteroid classified based on spectral analyses of their surfaces.
This article discusses the ore minerals used in semiconducting.
This article discusses the vehicles that are best equipped to be used for mining in space.
This article is an introduction to quantum minerals.
Rheology encompasses the science of deformation and how matter flows over time based on the mechanical properties of the material and whether it behaves in a brittle, elastic or viscous fashion.
Acid mine drainage (AMD) is a significant source of water pollution in areas surrounding current and historic metal and coal mine sites.
In this article, we explore the ways in which water contaminated by mining can be purified and altered in order to make it drinkable.
The use of automated precision-engineered technology in mining, from hardware such as drilling-rigs and ventilation systems.
The Avio® 550 Max is a compact, fully simultaneous ICP-OES instrument with Scott/Cross-FlowTechnology.
ATLAS is a state-of-the-art TPMS telematics gateway that allows monitoring all your sensors with a single device.
The Rigaku ZSX Primus IVi offers high-speed chemical analysis of geological materials, liquids, alloys, chemicals and plated metals. As a sequential WDXRF spectrometer, it offers superior resolution and sensitivity compared to EDXRF spectrometers.
AZoMining speaks to Francois Nell at Sandvik about the importance of mining sustainability and why equipment rebuilding and upgrades play their part in reducing fuel consumption.
AZoMining speaks to Philip Gross, CEO of Snow Lake Lithium, about the development of the world's first electric lithium mine. This is a particularly important development within mining and highlights the significance of accelerating green mining across the world.
Prof. James Tour
AZoMining speaks with James Tour from Rice University about his team's exciting method that has the very real potential to recover valuable REE from three types of waste; electronic waste, coal fly ash and bauxite residue.
