The patents cover many areas, including a new class of polymers used for environmental remediation and a new mercury and cyanide method for extracting and recovering precious metals. The agreement also includes a research partnership that will provide ongoing funding for Associate Professor Chalker and his team, including researcher stipends and salaries and royalties as they continue to explore new ways to use the breakthrough product. Flinders University Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Robert Saint congratulated Associate Professor Chalker and his team for making a significant.
World-class research at Flinders University addresses challenges of local, national and global importance," Professor Saint said. "I can think of no better example than turning b2b email list the amazing research of the Chalker lab into new resources that can be used to bring about a cleaner world." Paul Hanna, CET's chairman and founder, said the partnership is an important step in the company's quest to find answers to some of the world's most pressing environmental issues. "We are focused on some of the biggest and most complex environmental issues in the world today, particularly oil spills, increasing e-waste and mercury pollution," Hanna said.
Many countries are facing the same critical challenges and are incurring huge financial, social and environmental costs. “We are looking for smarter, more efficient solutions and our collaboration with Flinders University and the Chalker Research Laboratory will go a long way to solving many of these challenges. "Technology like this, which uses waste to treat waste, has huge advantages for industry in the big city. It could also save the lives of thousands of small-scale, artisanal miners around the world who use toxic chemicals like mercury to survive and the communities around them.
