The Iron Cycle
Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of extractive divisions of IOM3
The Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining 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 Institutes web site and in Materials World.
The I&SS are leading the celebrations and a very full and fascinating series of events are planned which are being coordinated by the Institute.
The Extractive 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 March 20th. 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 attendee’s 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 Institutes 150 year anniversary, Fe-150. This embraces engineers, academics, students, industrialists in almost every field of life.
