Nor Kamariah is a chemist from Indonesia. She graduated with a master’s degree in chemistry from University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and obtained her bachelor’s degree from Lambung Mangkurat University (Indonesia). She worked for approximately 3 years in industrial sector as R&D specialist and quality control analyst in Indonesia. After being awarded a Danish Government Scholarship in 2017, she came to Denmark to pursue her dream; studying abroad in Europe. During her master’s degree, she took inorganic chemistry specialization and conducted a research on the synthesis and applications of graphene based materials for her thesis project. After graduation in August 2019, she worked as research assistant at the University of Copenhagen for 2.5 months.
She expands her research experience by taking an early stage researcher position at VITO (Flemish Institute for Technological Research) to work as ESR7 on SULTAN project ‘Advanced Leaching of Cu-Zn, Zn-Pb and Cu-Zn-Pb Tailings using Microwave Heating’. Dr. Jeroen Spooren (VITO) and Professor Koen Binnemans (KU Leuven) are respectively supervisor and co-supervisor for her project that will focus on the development of solvometallurgical method combined with microwave heating technology to increase selectivity, efficiency and kinetics of metal leaching. Nor Kamariah aspires to become better at research and to develop valuable scientific and soft-skills throughout the SULTAN project.

(Science) mining in Portugal
The 3rd Network Wide Event (NWE3) of SULTAN project not only allows early researchers and partners to exchange scientific ideas but also offer magnificent hands-on experiences at the same time: A brief travel into the past and gain useful knowledge for future sustainable mining
A week in Freiberg… (SULTAN Network-Wide Event 2)
On the first day, the SULTAN colleagues reunited in Freiberg, almost 7 months after the kick-off meeting in Leuven, and were happy to greet each other again before the official meeting started.
KU Leuven GEO-INSTITUTE visit
From 11th to 13th February, the SULTAN program Kick-off meeting was held in Leuven, where all partners and early stage researchers (ESRs) had the opportunity to meet each other and share information about the different work packages and the state of the research. On the third day, the ESRs were invited to visit the labs …
