The need to adopt a circular economy model, incorporating all processing practices, and to formulate a development strategy that emphasizes critical raw material exploration and environmental integrity emerges as a major challenge for the mining industry. The engagement of mining and metallurgical companies with the research community, the policymakers and modern society appears as the only opportunity to accelerate the transformation of such a primary sector of the economy and promote innovative ideas, tools and methodologies.
On this concept, the main concern of the International Conference on Raw Materials and Circular Economy is to bring together academics, engineers, early-stage scientists, industry executives, agents of public bodies, stakeholders and other professionals from the field of raw materials for a comprehensive, cross-discipline exchange of knowledge. The main topics of the conference include:
- New trends in mineral exploration and characterization;
- Advances in mineral processing;
- Sustainable metallurgy;
- Novel industrial minerals;
- Environment and energy issues;
- Waste valorization;
- Education on minerals;
- Circular economy strategies;
- Hygiene and safety aspects.
We invite all people from research institutes, government bodies and industry professionals to participate in the conference and share their latest developments in one of the trending topics. To all that are joining us at the conference, please do not miss out on this the opportunity to submit your full paper to the Special Issue.
Interesting contributions from RawMat 2021 and other researchers who work in this field are both welcome!
