In its first five years, the Coalition for Eco-Efficient Comminution (CEEC) has established itself as a trusted, impartial facilitator of all companies interested in promoting practical energy efficiency and productivity improvements in mineral processing operations, with a focus on the typically most energy-hungry activities of comminution. CEEC is a unique organisation and is an impartial facilitator of improvement, innovation and collaboration, strongly supported by CEEC’s sponsors who are mining and METS companies. MEI is proud to have CEEC as an industry advocate for our comminution conferences, including the upcoming Comminution '18.
CEEC Chairman Joe Pease was a keynote speaker at Comminution '16, and he has just announced the appointment of a permanent Chief Executive to lead the next phase of CEEC, Alison Keogh. Alison is a highly regarded mining professional with 25 years of experience in the mining and METS sector, and the MEI team greatly look forward to working with her. Full details of her appointment can be found on MEI Online.
And congratulations to Joe Pease, who in April will be presented with the AusIMM's most prestigious award, The Institute Medal (MEI Online). Joe is one of the team of consultants at Mineralis, a group of nine minerals practitioners (which includes Flotation '17 keynote speaker Dr. Bill Johnson) whose experience covers management of mineral processing and smelting/refining operations, technical development and commercialisation, professional formation, commodities marketing, project design and due diligence, and operations turn-around. Mineralis announced a few days ago the appointment of Michael Young, who has 28 years’ experience in operating and technical roles treating complex mineral ores. Full details on MEI Online.
And another important appointment in Australia is that of Dr. Chu Yong Cheng of CSIRO, who starts as an Associate Editor of Hydrometallurgy on 1st January. Full details on MEI Online.
