Professor Mari Lundström's research group at the Department of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering searches for metals in secondary raw materials and develops methods and processes designed to more effectively recover and recycle metals. The research is motivated by the aspiration to achieve sustainable development.

“With increasingly complex products in the electronics and energy storage applications, for example, new technologies need to be developed for improved metal recovery", professor Lundströn says. "Hydrometallurgy is an essential tool in enabling selective metal recovery from complex systems”, she continues.

A large part of the work done by the research group is experimentation and modelling, including a lot of, for example, electrochemical experiments, leaching tests, analyses and process modelling, not to mention metallurgical data modelling.

Mari Lundström joined Aalto University as a professor in February 2015. Before that, she worked for several years in industry with a company called Outotec.
