A Perspective on the Metals and Mining Industry

Rapid urbanization and industrialization of developing regions is challenging our ability to preserve the globe’s natural capital. To sustain the economic growth without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs, society should maximize the economic value generated from our scarce resources. This seminar will discuss the resource productivity concept within the metals and mining industry.
This seminar is organized on the initiative of the K.U.Leuven Research groups of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering and Applied Geology & Mineralogy, with the cooperation of Sustainable Inorganic Material Management (SIM²), alumni geology (BVLG), the Research Center Leuven Sustainable Earth and the Arenberg doctoral school.
