In UVic’s Department of Civil Engineering… [Heather Buckley] and [Caetano] Dorea share an interest in extracting resources from water. Dorea is exploring how to extract phosphorous from waste water, which would both get rid of an environmental contaminant and recycle a non-renewable resource. Buckley is exploring ways to extract valuable metals from mining effluent, which she hopes could lead to a reduction in mining activities.
UVic’s Research and Learning Repository, UVicSpace, contains recent open access publications of both Dorea and Buckley’s vital research that you can read now by following the links provided here, here and here.

The UVic Copyright and Scholarly Communications office would like to congratulate Dr. Zuomin Dong on his recent UVicNews article that highlights his important work …
‘Dong’s research, which will reduce the environmental impact and costs of marine traffic, is funded in part by a million-dollar donation by the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, in conjunction with Seaspan. That funding supports the team’s [UVic’s Clean Transportation Research Team] development of the enabling technology and integrated modelling tools to transition marine vessels to optimized hybrid natural-gas / electric and pure electric propulsion systems.’
We invite you to visit UVic’s institutional repository, UVicSpace to view his open access papers.
