Congratulations to Tero Junnila for finishing his master's thesis

"Batch leaching of gold in cupric chloride media"

Tero recently finished his thesis on "Batch leaching of gold in cupric chloride media".

Tero investigated the topic as cupric chloride media offers a potential alternative to cyanide leaching for leaching gold. In his work, increasing chloride concentration and reducing particle size were noted to be important factors for improving gold extraction. Increasing circumferential speed, temperature and cupric concentration also had a positive effect, however when the latter is increased excessively, passivation of metals occur and gold dissolution decreases.

Congratulations Tero!

Multidisciplinary research project based on origami seeks solutions for industrial needs

A joint project covering the fields of mathematics, engineering and arts is about to start at Aalto, where the aim is to study and develop folding technology for the needs of industry. In addition to Aalto, the project includes VTT as coordinator, and several companies from the forest industry to the machine design and cosmetics brands, such as Stora Enso, Metsä Group, Lumene, Mirka, Elomatic, Anpap, Orfer and Soften. Business Finland granted funding for the Co-Innovation project.
