Before coming to UOW, he worked at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) as part of the EU-funded Ultra-Low CO2 Steel (ULCOS) project. His interests lie in sustainable iron and steelmaking, in both conventional and alternative processing. Dr Raymond Longbottom brings to the hub 16 years’ experience in iron and steelmaking research.

In his current project on recycling steel plant by-products, he hopes to help with the development of (environmental and economically) sustainable practices and utilisation of materials in steelmaking.
