Namibia '18: programmes for Biohydromet '18 and Sustainable Minerals '18 published

As MEI consultant Prof. Sue Harrison will highlight in her opening keynote lecture at Biohydromet '18, over the past 40 years biohydrometallurgy has been recognised increasingly as a niche technology for extraction of metal values from recalcitrant minerals, low grade ores and mineral resources carrying penalty metals. 
With an increasing focus on the circular economy, the sources of metals are changing, to include secondary resources such as waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and municipal solid waste, presenting new challenges for biohydrometallurgists and mineral processors.
It is not surprising, therefore, that there is considerable common ground between the two-day Biohydromet '18 and Sustainable Minerals '18 conferences, which will run back to back in Windhoek, Namibia in June, the first MEI Conferences to have a joint conference dinner between the events.
The provisional programmes for the conferences (Biohydromet '18 and Sustainable Minerals '18) are now available and there are discounted registration fees for those wishing to attend both events at the Windhoek Country Club.
We thank Outotec and International Mining for their support of both conferences, and Zeiss and CEEC for supporting Sustainable Minerals.
We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting country, a new venue for MEI Conferences.
