We welcome Lotta Sartz to Swedish Mining Innovation! Lotta, who is employed at Örebro University, will work for the Swedish Mining Innovation Bergslagen initiative and thus become the program office’s extended arm in the area.
Lotta, who has a background at Bergskraft and Örebro University, has worked with research and teaching in chemistry and in research-related projects and assignments. Her main focus area has always been mines, metals and minerals and she has worked extensively with applied projects around the development of after-treatment techniques for mining waste, extraction from secondary raw materials and environmental impact from mines.
Lotta is also passionate about questions about how we can increase interest in science in school, and show the relevance of, for example, chemistry – elements and chemical processes that exist around us. She is also very interested in questions that are about increasing knowledge and understanding of why we need metals and minerals.
