The Iron Cycle
Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of the Resources Divisions of IOM3
IOM3 is celebrating the 150 year anniversary of its foundation through the Iron and Steel Society, I&SS. These events and activities are being described and updated through the 150th anniversary microsite and in Materials World magazine.
The I&SS is leading the celebrations and a very full and fascinating series of events is planned, co-ordinated by the Institute.
The Resources* Divisions are contributing to the anniversary which includes arranging this one-day conference “The Iron Cycle – Fe 150” which will be held at the Institute’s London HQ, 297 Euston Road on 20 March. The theme is "150 years of extracting, processing & recycling the material that built the modern world".
By the very nature and versatility of steel, there will be much overlap in the presentations and the conference will provide a great forum for increasing attendees' knowledge of the discovery, extraction, application and recycling of iron and steel in the modern era, in fact the entire iron cycle.
This is intended to be a tribute to the material that built the modern world.
The conference is aimed at all those involved in the exploration, extraction, processing and utilisation of iron, steel and its alloys from the early days to current times - the iron cycle to coincide with the Institute's 150 year anniversary, Fe-150. This embraces engineers, academics, students and industrialists in almost every field of life.
