The University of Adelaide’s mining and energy expertise has been acknowledged at South Australia’s 2021 Premier’s Awards in Energy and Mining.
Experts from industry, government and academia will converge on Adelaide to discuss the latest developments in one of South Australia’s biggest businesses: copper mining.
Experts are helping the mining industry find a pathway to more efficient, green, sustainable and safer mining operations by transitioning to battery-supported electric vehicles (BEVs).
A new training centre will deliver the next generation of scientists and engineers in sensors, data analytics and artificial intelligence to increase value in the mining and processing of complex resources.
The University of Adelaide has been awarded more than $3.6 million in industry-linked grants by the Australian Research Council (ARC) for important research that will attract a further $1.8 million in support from industry. The research will have a positive impact on diverse areas such as defence, food production and protecting the environment.
Ongoing and secure supply of critical minerals is essential to the transition to a high-tech and clean energy world.
The surging global embrace of high-tech applications and clean energy is accelerating demand for the critical metals that enable these applications.
A new project is set to transform understanding of the impact of mining on Australian subterranean species.
