We welcome two more sponsors for Flotation '21: Metso Outotec and Woodgrove Technologies

The response to Flotation '21, MEI's 10th flotation conference, and the first to be totally online, has been more than we could have hoped for, such that we have had to extend to five days to accommodate all the abstracts submitted, and we now have 21 major sponsors who have thrown their weight behind the event. The two latest are Metso Outotec and Woodgrove Technologies.

Last month we welcomed Metso Outotec as a sponsor of Sustainable Minerals '22, and although this will be the first time that the company has had the opportunity to sponsor a flotation conference since the merger of Metso and Outotec, they were regular sponsors of many MEI Conferences under the names of their individual companies. The merger was completed just over a year ago, forming a unique new company with leadership in sustainable minerals and metals processing and recycling technologies. Headquartered in Finland, Metso Outotec employs over 15,000 professionals in more than 50 countries.

Established in 2009 by Glenn Kosick and Glenn Dobby to promote their Staged Flotation Reactor, Canadian company Woodgrove Technologies continues the mandate of their previous company, Minnovex, in providing innovative, technologically advanced flotation and advanced process control systems for the mineral processing industry. In 2018, for the first time in its history, a double award was made at the Canadian Mineral Processors Annual Meeting, when Glenn Dobby and Glenn Kosick were made Canadian Mineral Processors of the Year for their development of the Staged Flotation Reactor.

Woodgrove's Staged Flotation Reactors and Direct Flotation Reactors are low-footprint and cost-efficient flotation units and design of circuits incorporating these devices will be described by the Manager of the Flotation Division, David Hatton, at the conference.
