New insights into biomass combustion ash categorisation: A phylogenetic analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Stewart, D. I., Burke, I. T., Zhai, J., Burke, I., Mayes, W. M., & Stewart, D. (in press). New insights into biomass combustion ash categorisation: A phylogenetic analysis. Fuel, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fuel.2020.119469

Combustion of biomass within power stations is a more sustainable way to generate electricity than the use of fossil fuels provided the feedstock is sustainably grown. The physical and chemical properties of biomass combustion ash from different feed... Read More about New insights into biomass combustion ash categorisation: A phylogenetic analysis.

Legacy iron and steel wastes in the UK: Extent, resource potential, and management futures (2020)
Journal Article
Riley, A. L., MacDonald, J. M., Burke, I. T., Renforth, P., Jarvis, A. P., Hudson-Edwards, K. A., …Mayes, W. M. (2020). Legacy iron and steel wastes in the UK: Extent, resource potential, and management futures. Journal of Geochemical Exploration, 219, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gexplo.2020.106630

The iron and steel industry has a long tradition of bulk reuse of slags for a range of construction applications. Growing interest in recent years has seen slag resource recovery options extend to critical raw material recovery and atmospheric carbon...

Effect of an extreme flood event on solute transport and resilience of a mine water treatment system in a mineralised catchment (2020)
Journal Article
Mayes, W. M., Perks, M. T., Large, A. R., Davis, J. E., Gandy, C. J., Orme, P. A., & Jarvis, A. P. (2021). Effect of an extreme flood event on solute transport and resilience of a mine water treatment system in a mineralised catchment. The Science of the total environment, 750, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.141693

Extreme rainfall events are predicted to become more frequent with climate change and can have a major bearing on instream solute and pollutant transport in mineralised catchments. The Coledale Beck catchment in north-west England was subject to an e...
