NTNU and NMBU work together to solve water challenges

The water group of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) held a meeting with the department of Geoscience and Petroleum, NTNU, to explore collaboration possibilities. Prof Harsha Ratnaweera and Dr Zakhar Maletskyi from the faculty of science and technology, NMBU, visited Prof Hanumantha Rao Kota and Prof Irina Chernyshova and discussed the potential synergies and applicability between the technologies used in mineral processing and water purification. They have identified several thematic areas (ion flotation to enhance organic matter removal, recovery of valuable material from process water etc) which can be suitable for the forthcoming R&D Calls.
