This EMC will be dedicated to the continuous efforts of our industry to meet the challenges of a globalizing world by delivering important contributions to the welfare in our future.
The conference refers to the basic economic challenge, the growing scarcity of resources even as continuously growing population and emerging economies demand more and more raw materials. This situation requires new and sustainable solutions to improve the overall resource efficiency in the Non-Ferrous industry. In fact this situation is a springboard for the development of sophisticated production processes, with a limited amount of all wasted materials.
Sustainability of the Non-Ferrous Metals industry will be duly examined in respect to its technologi-cal, ecological and economic aspects in about 30 topical sessions, which are clustered in three main areas; (I) Resources/Metals, (II) Materials Processing, (III) Sustainable Production and (IV) Themes of current issues / Best Practices.
Not only the production of metals, but also the preparation, processing and recycling of raw materi-als and residues are discussed, the impact on the environment and health protection are in the focus of the presentations too. In addition, economic and legal issues such as data security and competi-tion law in an increasing digital global industry are discussed.
