Mineral Recycling Forum 2024 Dubrovnik, 22-24 April

Mineral Recycling Forum 2024

Dubrovnik, 22-24 April

More than ever, the fast evolving industrial mineral recycling sector has an essential and increasing role to play as mineral consuming markets, and governments, undergo a major rethink on strategic mineral sourcing and evaluate recycled alternatives for a sustainable future in mineral use in the Circular Economy.

As the minerals industry strives towards sustainable development in the 2020s, the recycling of waste products – whether from mine tailings or industrial waste – to generate “Secondary Raw Materials” (SRM) is emerging fast as an important additional source of industrial minerals for a range of consuming markets.

Tomorrow’s “mining” will in large part be efficient and economic utilisation of today’s industrial waste.

  • But how to go about getting involved in this sector?

  • Whether to invest in an in-house business/plant?

  • Partner with an independent recycler?

  • Who’s doing what already & how?

  • And crucially, what impact will it have on customers and markets?
