The system is based on pioneering research, funded by Eskom, conducted by the University of Cape Town’s Professor Alison Lewis and is designed to remove all pollution from the water, solidify it into pure salts and clean the water to the point where it can be reused in the power plant.
Engineering & the Built Environment Dean Professor Alison Lewis and her team recently brought home an award from the Water Research Commission for a pioneering process to treat acid mine drainage – but this is only a hint of things to in the year ahead when water will play an even greater role in the life of the faculty.
Professor Alison Lewis has co-authored a new book, Industrial Crystallization: Fundamentals and Applications, which bridges the gap between theory and practice, and provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of industrial crystallization.
