Mineral Recycling Forum 2016, Rotterdam

As the minerals industry strives towards sustainable development, Secondary Raw Materials (SRM) have emerged as an important source of industrial minerals for a range of consuming markets.

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, eg. refractories, steel slag, fly ash.

Recycling of spent refractory bricks as a source of secondary raw material is increasing.

Mineral Recycling Forum 2016, 14-15 March 2016, Rotterdam 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 2016 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.

MagForum 2016, Vienna

In response to market demand, IMFORMED is delighted to announce its inaugural MagForum 2016, 9-11 May 2016, Vienna – the biennial conference for all those active in the development, supply, processing, logistics, and market application of magnesium minerals.

The Forum will cover the full spectrum of the magnesia business, including insightful supply round-ups, market trends and analysis, projects in the pipeline, the latest technical innovations, logistics solutions, and processing developments.

As we start putting the programme together we are very pleased to announce the participation of RHI AG as our leading sponsor, hosting a visit to its Veitsch facility and the Welcome Reception, both on Monday 9 May 2016.
