:: Collaboration between UCT and Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR)


The MOU signed between UCT and HZDR at UCT on 4th May 2016 acknowledges the alignment of the two institutions and provides the framework for collaboration between UCT's Minerals to Metals Signature theme (MtM) and the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF).

HZDR is a member of the Helmholtz Association, a union of 18 research centres in Germany. The official mission of the Association is "solving the grand challenges of science, society and industry". At HIF research is focused on new technologies for the exploration, mining, and use of strategically important metals and minerals. This fits well with UCT being committed to ensuring that research informs all its activities including teaching, learning and service to the community, advancing and disseminating knowledge that addresses the key challenges facing society.

Prof Reuter, in his joining of HIF as co-Director in 2015, formulated a vision for research in System Integrated Materials Production, at the heart of which lie the concepts of a circular materials economy. This concept which recognises that, in order to optimise material cycles, a comprehensive understanding and model of all process flows (from primary resource extraction, to beneficiation, to manufacture, to recycling to final disposal) is needed, associated with models of the relevant process technologies.
