Announcement of International Conference
Processing of Lean Grade and Urban Ores (IC-LGO 2015)
January 20-22, 2015
Venue : CSIR-NML, Jamshedpur, India
The last date for the submission of full Paper is November 30, 2014.
Metals and alloys have played a significant role since the ancient civilization to the present day high technology age. Rapid economical growth, technological innovation, increased needs of society and industrialization have ensured the increased demand of metals. This results in concerns over sustainability because of the scarcity of natural and high grade resources. On the other hand, waste management is also one of the key problems of modern society because of the ever expanding volume and complexity of discarded domestic and industrial wastes containing various metals. Therefore, the immediate emphasis is to develop suitable technologies for the utilization of lean grade ores, dumped ores, fines, slime, mine water, urban ores viz. industrial solid/ liquid, electronic, municipal wastes etc. through energy efficient and environment friendly processes with a view to meet the potential future requirements of various industries. The conference will provide a global forum and unique opportunity to exchange and discuss scientific information, technological innovations and applications amongst experts and practitioners from different disciplines viz. industries, R&D establishments, academia on a common platform for exploitation of lean grade ores, fines and urban ores considering the challenges and problems.
Bring together global experts and practitioners from interdisciplinary areas, industries, R&D establishments, academia as well as students on a common platform for updating and sharing their experiences and knowledge to exploit lean grade raw materials.
Give an impetus to develop new technologies/processes to exploit lean grade ores, fines and urban ores considering the challenges and problems.
