Bring your brewed beverage of choice (that includes coffee and tea!) and join the CREWS team for our next CREWS and BREWS event! CREWS and BREWS is an opportunity to learn more about the project and catch up with fellow CREWS teammates. Each event will begin with an initial 15-minute "update" presentation on some component of CREWS, followed by discussion and socializing. 

January Topic: Continuous Flow Metal Recovery (CFMR) System

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Jerry Downey - Dr. Downey is a Professor of Extractive Metallurgy and campus Director of the Materials Sciences Ph.D. program at Montana Tech. He will provide introductory remarks and introduce the student speakers.
  • Teagan Leitzke - a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Material Sciences Ph.D. program at Montana Tech. Teagan will provide an overview of the CFMR system development effort as well as present and describe some of her recent data and findings.
  • Baylie Phillips - a junior in the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering program at Montana Tech. Baylie recently completed her CREWS-funded internship with the Downey Research Group. Baylie’s research explored selenium adsorption on magnetite.
  • Trevor Russell - a student in the M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering program at Montana Tech. Trevor will present his progress and findings on the “Optimization of Operating Parameters for Metal Stripping from Magnetite in a CFMR System.”
