August Technical Meeting

Biological Treatment of Mine Waters – Challenges and Opportunities in Removing Heavy Metals

Speaker: Dr Sanaz Orandi University of Adelaide

Sanaz is an Environmental Geologist specialising in water treatment technologies. In this presentation, Sanaz will discuss establishing a biofilm reactor, and the significant opportunities and challenges it presents for the removal of various toxic and other heavy metals from acid mine drainage (AMD).

Sanaz completed her Master’s degree in Economic Geology in Iran. Her research project focused on the impact of waste rocks on generation of AMD in the largest copper mine in Iran, where she identified the bio-sorbant role of indigenous algal-microbial biofilms. This research brought her to Australia to undertake a PhD in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Adelaide where she investigated the bio-treatment of AMD using algal-microbial biofilm in a photo-reactor.
