The Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment held their 2012 Three Minute Thesis heats on the 29th of May.

26 research higher degree students from across the Faculty participated in the event, which required the competitors to explain their research to a non-specialist audience in only three minutes.

Chemical engineering MPhil candidate Kim van Netten took home first place for her presentation 'Enhanced recovery of ultra-fine coal particles through a modified oil agglomeration process.'

This presentation is a summary of the research Kim is undertaking at the University of Newcastle's Centre for Advanced Particle Processing.

In her research she is testing a novel modification of an existing coal processing technology which she hopes will recover fine coal particles. This is important as these fine coal particles are currently classified as unable to be processed and are rejected as waste.

This represents a loss of valuable product and a waste of a non-renewable natural resource. Kim's research is progressing well so far and has a very promising outlook.
