Unlocking the Future: GRolls® Co-founder Pursues PhD to Advance Revolutionary Technology

April 162024

    In a bid to propel the GRolls technology to new heights, Mark Drechsler, Co-founder and Director of GRolls, has embarked on a groundbreaking journey — pursuing a PhD at the University of South Australia.

    Mark’s research focuses on optimising the GRolls® Gyratory Rolls Crusher, a compression-based particle size reduction device that promises to transform the mining and cement industries. By studying at UniSA, he gains access to cutting-edge resources and collaborates with leading experts in particle processing technology. The goal of his PhD project is to delve deeper into the mechanics of the GRolls® system, seeking to uncover even more efficient ways to reduce particle size with lower energy consumption, while maintaining high productivity.

    This academic pursuit underscores GRolls® commitment to innovation and excellence, ensuring that the technology not only meets but exceeds industry standards and customer expectations. Through his PhD research, Mark is setting the stage for further technological enhancements and sustainable practices in material processing industries worldwide.

    Stay tuned for further updates as we follow Mark’s academic journey and its impacts on the future developments of GRolls® technology.


    Mark added:
    I am very excited to be part of the hashtag#COEMinerals team, which is discovering and inventing science-based, more efficient ways to recover minerals. I believe my research on the GRolls® crushing technology can benefit mineral processing, and support the mining industry to meet Net Zero targets by 2050.”
