The coronavirus 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 undergo a major rethink on strategic mineral sourcing and evaluate alternatives.

Until we are able to provide our usual high quality in-person event, we are offering the market an excellent alternative: a live online conference.

As the minerals industry strives towards sustainable development in the 2020s, the recycling of waste products – whether from mine tailings or industrial waste – to generate “Secondary Raw Materials” (SRM) is emerging fast as an important additional source of industrial minerals for a range of consuming markets.

See IMFORMED’s recent online article spotlighting recycling:

New era of mineral exploration, sourcing & development dawns

The push for the “Circular Economy”, increased recycling of all products, recognition of over-reliance on declining and limited natural mineral resources, pressure on critical minerals supply, have all placed mineral recycling firmly in the spotlight.

Tomorrow’s “mining” will in large part be efficient and economic utilisation of today’s industrial waste.

Mineral Recycling Forum 2021 ONLINE 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 2021 ONLINE 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.

Tuesday 9 February 2021
12.00-17.00 GMT Presentations & Discussion

At present, we are using Zoom Pro Webinar, and we are aiming to add breakout rooms and wider networking functions for 2021. We shall keep you posted on this with appropriate advisories.
