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:
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.
Held in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, Mineral Recycling Forum 2022 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 2022 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.
