IMFORMED is delighted to announce

Mineral Recycling Forum 2020, Pullman Hotel Aachen Quellenhof, 10-11 March 2020

As the minerals industry strives towards sustainable development, the recycling of waste products to generate “Secondary Raw Materials” (SRM) has emerged as an important source of industrial minerals for a range of consuming markets.

The push for a “greening” of the world economy, increased recycling of all products, and sensitivity on over-reliance of declining and limited natural mineral resources, have all placed mineral recycling firmly in the spotlight. Tomorrow’s “mining” will in large part be utilisation of today’s industrial waste.

Developments in sourcing, processing, and quality control, as well as rising primary raw material prices, have enabled the economic recycling of minerals contained in certain industrial waste products.

This year our location is the historic city of Aachen, also home to some of Europe’s leading recycling and mineral technological learning and research centres.


Mineral Recycling Forum 2020 brings together an expert panel to discuss the latest trends and developments in SRM sourcing, supply, processing, quality control, logistics, and crucially, their market applications.

Mineral Recycling Forum 2020 will be of interest to all those active in the sourcing, processing, distribution and use of SRM, and especially established industrial mineral suppliers and buyers keen to assess the outlook for competitive and substitute materials.
