Queensland University Develops Green Technology for Mine Sites

The University of Queensland (UQ) has developed a new technology to support plant growth at mine sites previously unable to support any vegetation due to heavy metal soil contamination.

With financial support from Xstrata Technology, MetalloTek will manage further development and commercialisation of the technology in partnership with industry stakeholders.

MetalloTek's lead researcher said the new technology had the potential to be a low-cost and effective tool for helping rehabilitate metal-contaminated mine sites.
