MINTEK, Pyrometallurgy

Mintek’s Pyrometallurgy Division carries out high-temperature research and process development for the production of a wide variety of mineral commodities. The primary aim is to provide R&D support for the minerals processing industry in South Africa, performing blue-sky research in mathematical and computational modelling of transport phenomena and chemistry of high-temperature metallurgy. We focus on the use of high performance computing to enable solutions of the very large and complex multi-physics problems commonly found in the field of pyrometallurgy.
