Ensure you don’t miss out on next year’s leading networking opportunities for the industrial minerals business
Programmed with Intelligence | Moderated by Experts | To Engage and Serve the Industry
As the minerals industry strives towards sustainable development, Secondary Raw Materials (SRM) – such as spent refractories, steel slag, aluminium slag, fly ash, silica fume – have emerged as an important source of industrial minerals for a range of consuming markets. Here we bring together an expert panel to discuss the latest trends and developments in such SRM, including sourcing, supply, processing, quality control, logistics, and crucially, their market applications. Also featuring a special session on refractories recycling.
The networking and knowledge hub for the industrial minerals logistics market. Without due care and attention in securing optimal logistics systems and supply routes, the future of a mineral project is challenged right from the start. Minerals for European papermaking, borates from the USA, Chinese talc supply, Vienna’s multi-modal hub, and the latest in mineral handling technology are just some of the key topics presented. Includes a visit to mineral operations in the Port of Rotterdam.
In response to market demand, IMFORMED is delighted to organise a new biennial conference for the development, supply, processing, logistics, and market applications of magnesium minerals. With 14 expert speakers already confirmed and a visit to RHI’s Veitsch magnesia refractories plant, the full spectrum of consuming markets will be covered from refractories to speciality industrial sectors, as well as a global review of producers and production. Learn all about magnesia’s outlook from the heartland of its development and use.
Supply and demand trends for oilfield minerals are under the spotlight here. Despite reduced drilling activity, demand continues and consumers and suppliers alike are keen to monitor outlook trends and assess new and alternative sources for oilfield minerals such as barite, bentonite, proppants, graphite. Oilfield service majors will discuss developments in drilling fluid mineral consumption.
In co-operation with Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, this is the world’s new meeting place for the natural graphite industry. Three days of presentations, workshops and networking events all dedicated to examining the present and future of the natural graphite industry.
