Bioleaching for resource recovery from low-grade wastes like fly and bottom ashes from municipal incinerators: A SWOT analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Funari, V., & Ferrari, R. (2020). Bioleaching for resource recovery from low-grade wastes like fly and bottom ashes from municipal incinerators: A SWOT analysis. Science of the Total Environment, 715, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.136945

Bioleaching (or microbial leaching) is a biohydrometallurgical technology that can be applied for metal recovery from anthropogenic waste streams. In particular, fly ashes and bottom ashes of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) can be used as a...

Presentation / Conference
Watson, N. J., Escrig Escrig, J., Woolley, E., Rangappa, S., & Simeone, A. (2019, May). Monitoring the Different Stages of Industrial Cleaning using Ultrasonic Sensors. Paper presented at 7th International Symposium on Sensor Science

Clean-in-Place (CIP) technologies use a combination of time, temperature, chemicals and mechanical force (caused by flowing water) to clean processing equipment in the food and drink, pharmaceutical and fast moving consumer goods sectors. One of the... Read More about Monitoring the Different Stages of Industrial Cleaning using Ultrasonic Sensors.

Constructed wetlands for steel slag leachate management: Partitioning of arsenic, chromium, and vanadium in waters, sediments, and plants (2019)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Mayes, W. M., Whitby, P., & Rogerson, M. (2019). Constructed wetlands for steel slag leachate management: Partitioning of arsenic, chromium, and vanadium in waters, sediments, and plants. Journal of Environmental Management, 243, 30-38. doi:10.1016/j.jenvman.2019.04.127

Constructed wetlands can treat highly alkaline leachate resulting from the weathering of steel slag before reuse (e.g. as aggregate) or during disposal in repositories and legacy sites. This study aimed to assess how metal(loid)s soluble at high pH,...
