The Covid-19 pandemic has amplified the issues of overreliance on certain mineral sources and the vulnerability of mineral supply chains.

More than ever, the fast evolving mineral recycling sector has an essential and increasing role to play as consuming markets, and goverments, undergo a major rethink on the future of strategic and sustainable mineral sourcing.

Mineral Recycling Forum 2022 will provide an invaluable opportunity to take the pulse of this evolving sector through expert presentations from leading players, informative discussion, and all-important networking with those active in the business.
