Coal Research

John R Bunt

Professor Bunt obtained his PhD in the field of Chemical Engineering (fixed-bed coal gasification) at the North-West University in 2006. During the last 35 years Professor Bunt’s research interests have ranged widely from: base metals, platinum group metal refining, mining chemicals, ash mineralogy, and more recently, coal beneficiation and fixed-bed gasification.

I have been involved with Mössbauer spectroscopy technology since 1991 at the then PU for CHE, currently the North-West University’s Potchefstroom Campus, which entails the application of mineral and mineral studies. Several publications in international journals and conference presentations flowed from this work.
