Tonsley Talks Justin Chalker Website


Meet Dr Justin Chalker of Tall Poppy Campaign, Australian Institute of Policy & Science.

Dr Chalker will describe how the Chalker Research Lab at Flinders University is converting industrial waste into polymers that trap pollution. These materials are inexpensive and efficient at cleaning up both oil spills and mercury emissions. The talk will also describe a new effort to use these sustainable polymers in mercury- and cyanide-free gold mining. This campaign aims to support subsistence miners in developing regions and eliminate the reliance on highly toxic mercury in artisanal gold mining.
