Due to the COVID-19 crisis, CAMM seminar scheduled for 21-22 April 2020, is being postponed to autumn 2020. The new date will be announced as soon as it is decided.
The Mining industry is very important for the Swedish economy; especially for Northern Sweden. On the other hand, as in any other industry, wastewater are generated and the mining activity can accelerate significantly the generation of acid mine drainage (AMD).
Welcome to an open pitching event and workshop to be held at LTU on 20 September 2019 from 9 to 12
This was the 15th edition of this mining conference that is arranged for academia, business, financiers and politicians. This year there was a great focus on sustainability and how the mining and metal industry will cope with that transition. The conference also offered panel discussions and awards ...
From mines and smelters some waste containing high levels of arsenic will occur. Today, this waste ends up at different landfills, but in a new research project, Luleå Technical University's professor Jurate Kumpiene will develop a method for safe final storage of arsenic.
Seven proposals were submitted in response to the CAMM2 call for high-risk projects. The Steering Committee evaluated the submitted proposals in terms of :
Formas is funding a new project for the project "Design of selective collectors for the separation of valuable mineral from mining waste". Anna-Carin Larsson and Anuttam Patra at Chemistry of Interfaces at Luleå University of Technology, was awarded three million SEK.
A delegation from the China University of Geosciences in Beijing (CUGB) visited LTU on Tuesday 2 October 2018 and discussed possible collaboration in research and education with the Pro Vice-Chancellor Pär Weihed, the head of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering (...
Environmental monitoring, detecting fractures in open-pit mines, and gathering crucial information about how ore deposits form. Luleå University of Technology's new custom-made drone is equipped with camera and magnetometer and can be used for a wide range of purposes.
The educators come from the Swedish Geological Survey (SGU), the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and Luleå University of Technology. After education, they will get to work with everything they learned and implement it in their organizations in Africa. After 10 months, trainers from Sweden wi...
Researchers in applied geochemistry at Luleå University of Technology will, together with SGU and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, educate personnel from the the mining industry in Zambia, Tanzania and Ethiopia. The project will run for a five-year period and will be funded by SIDA.
CAMM2 will have an annual call for what we define as high-risk projects to boost ideas that go beyond what is described in the research plans for each work package. It is important that the proposal is contributing to the overall aim of CAMM2 and therefore we anticipate applications that qualify wit...
The 27-28 was the annual Bergforsk Days in Festival Hall at The StadsHotel in Luleå. It was a compact program with many prominent guests.
Pär Weihed in SVD Opinion/Debate. End Replica in the debate on the mining industry.
The mining area is red hot. The Swedish Government, the EU and many funders are investing lots of money to support research and industry related to mining activities.
Luleå University of Technology (LTU), is assigned to coordinate mining research in the Nordic countries in the project NordMin. Nordic Council of Ministers is investing almost 35 million over three years to the project, which will have a green profile to create a sustainable mining industry in the N...
Debate article by Peter Larsson, Public Policy Director of the Swedish engineers, and Pär Weihed, professor and director CAMM (Centre of Advanced Mining and Metallurgy) at Luleå University of Technology.
Three scholars from the Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural resources engineering were Awarded for Best PhD Thesis, Dissertation and Thesis.
Ett jättelikt europeiskt forskningscenter i Luleå med inriktning mot råvaror och mineral och med hela 500 anställda.
Pär Weihed, a professor at the university and Sweden´s only Professor of Ore Geology was awarded Nordea Scientific price 2011th
- It feels really great, and is a recognition of mineral and mining research in Sweden, said Pär Weihed.
The Geological Society of Sweden is 140 years old this year 2011, has more than 600 members and distributes two scientific journals.
It has now been 18 months since LTU as the only university in Sweden obtained strategic funding within the area sustainable use of natural resources – mining and minerals.
Our neighbors are now taking major steps in the mining industry and is investing in science the area. Swedens leading position can be threatened in accordance to Pär Weihed, professor in Ore Geology at the Luleå university of Technology.
