Summary

Parker Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Integrated Hydrometallurgy Solutions took over from the AJ Parker CRC for Hydrometallurgy in 2005 following a seven year CRC grant. The Centre's research spans two broad areas: Breakthrough Technologies and Process Fundamentals. The research activities in both areas focus on Australia's three major markets that utilise hydrometallurgical processes: alumina, base metals (particularly cobalt, copper, nickel and zinc) and gold.

The Process Fundamentals work is directed at achieving the fundamental understanding of the science behind current extraction processes that is needed to optimise existing hydrometallurgical plants, for example by increasing efficiency and yield, improving product quality and minimising operating costs.

The Breakthrough Technologies research aims to develop innovative processing technologies to exploit low-grade ores or currently uneconomic, untapped mineral deposits.
