IMPC 2020 is expected to gather over 1000 professionals and academics from the mining industry representing around 50 countries. Leading universities specializing in mineral processing, all major mining companies and global providers of services and technologies will attend the congress. The technical sessions will facilitate knowledge exchange and transfer of the most recent innovations in the area of mineral processing.
The International Mineral Processing Congress has been in existence for more than sixty years. The very first congress was held in September 1952 in London. Subsequently, there have been 29 congresses in 17 different countries. The IMPC has been a major driving force for the promotion of scientific and technical knowledge. It is the most prestigious event in the field of mineral processing in the world today. The congress has been truly international with delegates from all parts of the world deliberating on issues facing the mining and minerals processing industry.
In 2020, the IMPC will have a new technical stream called “Future Mining & Processing” where “Ocean Mining” is included. It would be a great chance to present the sediment separation that was developed within Blue Nodules. As the IMPC’s focus is on mineral processing and processing is an important part of mining manganese nodules, it would be a great opportunity to show an international audience what Blue Nodules has achieved by developing the sediment separation unit.
