First Announcement- Sustainable Minerals '16

In closing last month's SRCR '14 conference, Outotec's Markus Reuter stressed that minerals are at the centre of sustainability. The aim of the Sustainable Minerals (formerly SRCR) series of conferences has been to transfer the rich source of mineral processing knowledge accumulated over the years to a wider community dealing with waste processing and utilisation, recycling etc.

We would now like to invite scientists of all related disciplines to join us in Falmouth in June 2016 for Sustainable Minerals '16, which will immediately follow Biohydromet '16 at the same venue, the St. Michael's Hotel. There will be discounted rates for those attending both conferences.

As with all MEI Conferences, the papers presented at the meeting will form the basis of a special peer-reviewed issue of Minerals Engineering. Regular updates on the progress of the conference will be published on the conference website and on Twitter (#SustainableMinerals16 @barrywills).

You should plan ahead and try to spend a few days in Cornwall after the conference. There is much to see and do in this beautiful part of the world, as can be seen in the Cornwall section of the blog.

MEI's consultant to Sustainable Minerals '16 will, as always, be Prof. Markus Reuter of Outotec, Finland, who is also Adjunct Professor at Aalto University, Finland, Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne and a Guest Professor at the Central South University, China. He is co-author of the very recently published Handbook of Recycling, which discusses the multifaceted field of metal and materials recycling, reuse and reclamation in one compact volume, uniquely synthesizing industrial application alongside policy and economic implications.
