Dr Tynan Marais

.Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

Bioremediation of sulphate-rich mine water toward elemental sulphur recovery
Microbially mediated carbonate precipitation applied to dust suppression

Research interests - I have an active interest in the practical application of Biotechnology and Bioprocess Engineering research. I am currently involved in a research project aimed at improving the understanding of complex, mixed microbial communities associated with bioprocess systems for remediation of industrial wastewaters.
