Seminar: From mining through to smelting
29 November 2018 at 09:00 - 16:00
Welcome to the EIT RawMaterials-seminar on the topic “From mining through to smelting”, and an info-event for the next Call for Innovation Projects (KAVA 6).
The idea of the occasion is to encourage people to submit proposals to the EIT RawMaterials Call.
The companies operating in the fields of mining- and steel industry keep presentations and outline some of their challenges across the entire value chain where they could need R&D and/or education support.
In the discussion part, potential solutions are mapped where the University of Oulu could contribute. This gives an excellent platform for developing new project ideas for the next call.
The industry themes range from mining through to smelting:
- mine planning, including but not limited to extraction operations, safety processes, environmental protection
- mineral processing design and operations e.g. processing rare earths and battery cell materials
- steelmaking, including material sorting and selection, alloy design and upscaling, process modelling and control, designing by-products etc.
