Ecological engineering approach for bauixte residue rehabilitation: Pioneer plant establishment and it's physiological responses after being grown in amended seawater neutralized redmud

Currently completing a Masters in Environmental Management in Mining

Projects

Yarwun Project

The introduction of tolerant pioneer species is critical to further development of physicochemical and biological properties, towards the biogeochemical status of functional technosols to be compatible with diverse native plant species. However, biofavourable conditions remain to be developed and consolidated, such as the moderately alkalinity and very high levels of salinity.

The present project aims to screen a range of native and exotic plant species which have been reported to possess alkalinity-salinity tolerance, including halophytes and non-halophytes
