The goal of the IOM3 Non-Ferrous & Light Metals Group (formerly Light Metals Division) is to share knowledge and support education in non-ferrous and light metals to maximize sustainability, identify opportunities in advanced applications and promote the development of advanced manufacturing. The group also aims to ensure a vibrant and innovative non-ferrous and light metals technology scene in the UK.
The group is steered by a leadership team consisting of representatives from academia and industry, many at the forefront of their field. We welcome IOM3 members with an interest in non-ferrous and light metals and any new ideas for events, articles, and other initiatives.
This group includes the non-ferrous interests of the former IOM3 High Temperature Materials Committee, and is seeking representation from members with interests in copper and nickel based alloys and systems.
Alfred H Knight International, IXM and University of South Wales investigate the mineralogy of copper concentrates originating from the Central African Copperbelt and the oxidation of the ore minerals in transit to Asia.
Highlighting how adhesives, surface treatments and composites can be made more sustainable, this event will introduce emerging technologies for more sustainable materials and processes that can be used in the circular economy.
