CSIRO's Terry Norgate to present keynote at sustainability conference

We welcome Terry Norgate as a keynote speaker at next year's Sustainability through Resource Conservation & Recycling conference in Falmouth.  He will present a talk entitled "Towards more sustainable metal use through recycling and other technologies".

Terry is a Senior Project Engineer with CSIRO Process Science and Engineering, Australia, and has over 25 years experience in process modelling, simulation and analysis in the minerals industry. Terry’s current role involves carrying out process evaluations including the technical, economic and environmental evaluations of both new and existing processes in the areas of mineral and chemical processing and metal production, with a strong focus on the sustainability of these processes.

Terry has carried out environmental evaluations of a number of alternative processes for the production of various metals using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology and has published a number of papers in this area. This LCA work initially focussed on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, but more recently has included water and toxicity impacts of these processes.

SRCR '11will run back to back with Risk-Based Approaches to Major Decisions, at the Falmouth Beach Resort Hotel, Cornwall.
