Enhanced carbon capture in manipulated mine tailings

This project will study the effects of CO2 sequestration in mine waste tailings using a robotic mixing system. Mine waste tailings represent a large opportunity for carbon storage, assisting mining companies with goals to improve their carbon footprint. Robotic mixing of the surface of tailings is expected to accelerate carbon storage and mixing and measurement systems will be tested.
