Scope Process intensification in pyrometallurgical systems will be discussed. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Energy density increases in electric, gas, or other fueled furnaces
- Higher rates of gas injection per liquid volume in bath smelting operations
- Higher degrees of oxygen enrichment, higher firing rates, advanced burner designs
- Advances in furnce types from low intensity, e.g. reverb, to flash or beyond, e.g. plasma
- Changes required to the vessels to maintain vessel integrity at higher processing speeds
- Impacts of high rates of processing on deviation from equilibrium
- Ways to enhance heat and mass transport to maintain traditional processing efficiency/thermal efficiency, e.g. the use of microwaves or magnetic fields.
- On-line measurement and other improved process controls which allow for high processing intensities
