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 industrial wastes such as refractories, slags, glass, fly ash, bauxite residue, and waste water.

Mineral Recycling Forum 2016 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.
