About

Applied Geochemistry at Luleå University of Technology focuses on studies of the presence of elements and the geochemical processes that take place in rock, soil and water at Earth's surface.

Overview

Humans are today a significant geological factor that affects the Earth on a local, regional and global scale. Concerns about man's impact on the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and potentially toxic effects on the biosphere have actualized the need for environmental geochemistry.

Research and education in environmental geochemistry relates to environmental issues linked to the mining industry, infrastructure construction and community building, hydropower development, forestry, acid sulfate soils and sulfide-bearing rocks. In environmental forensics, we use isotopes, multi-element analyzes and mineral identification to trace pollution sources, mobility and geochemical processes in both natural and affected systems.

About the programme

Applied Geochemistry at Luleå University of Technology comprises studies into the occurrence and mobility of the chemical elements in the environment, with a particular focus on methods to prevent or reduce the environmental impact of mining.

Programme Structure

Research projects include:
  • CAMM WP5: Environment
  • Prevention of acid rock drainage generation
  • Uranium sources and mobility at an iron ore mine site in Northern Sweden
  • TRIWA LIFE - The Torne River International Watershed LIFE
  • REE in Historical Tailings (REEHT)
  • Critical metals in groundwater
  • Collaboration between Sweden and Ghana
  • Using forest ash to improve the water quality of pit lakes
  • Reusability of sulphide-bearing rock material
