Removal and recovery of vanadium from alkaline steel slag leachates with anion exchange resins (2016)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Jones, A., Rogerson, M., Greenway, G. M., Lisbona, D. F., Burke, I. T., & Mayes, W. M. (2017). Removal and recovery of vanadium from alkaline steel slag leachates with anion exchange resins. Journal of environmental management, 187, 384-392. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jenvman.2016.10.063

© 2016 The Author(s) Leachable vanadium (V) from steel production residues poses a potential environmental hazard due to its mobility and toxicity under the highly alkaline pH conditions that characterise these leachates. This work aims to test the e... Read More about Removal and recovery of vanadium from alkaline steel slag leachates with anion exchange resins.

Vanadium removal and recovery from bauxite residue leachates by ion exchange (2016)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Jones, A., Rogerson, M., Burke, I. T., & Mayes, W. M. (2016). Vanadium removal and recovery from bauxite residue leachates by ion exchange. Environmental science and pollution research international, 23(22), (23034-23042). doi:10.1007/s11356-016-7514-3. ISSN 0944-1344

Bauxite residue is an important by-product of the alumina industry, and current management practices do not allow their full valorisation, especially with regard to the recovery of critical metals. This work aims to test the efficiency of ion exchang... Read More about Vanadium removal and recovery from bauxite residue leachates by ion exchange.

Advances in understanding enviromental risks of red mud after the Ajka Spill, Hungary (2016)
Journal Article
Ujaczki, , Anton, D., Mayes, W. M., Burke, I. T., Gomes, H. I., Anton, Á. D., …Ujaczki, É. (2016). Advances in understanding enviromental risks of red mud after the Ajka Spill, Hungary. Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy, 2(4), 332-343. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40831-016-0050-z

In the 5 years since the 2010 Ajka red mud spill (Hungary), there have been 46 scientific studies assessing the key risks and impacts associated with the largest single release of bauxite-processing residue (red mud) to the environment. These studies... Read More about Advances in understanding enviromental risks of red mud after the Ajka Spill, Hungary.
