Husky Bites presents Special Guest Tim Eisele

Associate Professor, Chemical Engineering
Chemical Engineering Endowed Faculty Fellow
Michigan Technological University

Topic: There is more than one way to extract metals from ore. Massive mines that disrupt many square miles are not the only way to go. I have been working on a method for using bacteria to recover iron and manganese in such a way that, if it is done carefully, it may not even be obvious that mining is going on at all. The inspiration for this began right in my own yard, and in our own household well.
