Physical Separation '09

A beautiful day today in Falmouth for the opening of the conference. Only 34 delegates but a high calibre group of specialists from 13 countries:

Australia; Canada; Finland; France; Germany; Iran; Japan; Jordan; Netherlands; Portugal; Turkey; UK; USA.

One of the more interesting delegates is a medical doctor from USA, who has an interest in using ultrasonics to separate fine clay minerals from coal!!

The conference got off to a good start, with the keynote lecture Physical Separation: still much to achieve through innovation, presented by Prof. Kevin Galvin, University of Newcastle, Australia. This was followed, prior to the morning coffee break, by papers from France and Portugal on the Falcon and Knelson enhanced gravity concentrators.
