Michael Kapembwa wins Outotec award
Michael Kapembwa won the The Outotec “Sustainability in Mineral Industry” best paper presentation award at the Southern Africa Institute of Mining and Metallurgy-SAIMM MinProc 2012 workshop, held in Cape Town last year. The paper titled “Ice growth mechanisms in electrolyte aqueous solutions” was part of the Eutectic Freeze Crystallisation segment of the conference under a deliverable called “Factors affecting the purity of ice in Eutectic Freeze Crystallisation”.
