||Carbon intensive industries are at a crossroads. Long term manufacturing plans using pyrometallurgical processes all include decarbonization levers: we must solve the problem of fossil-based reduction and fossil-based power generation processes for metals production.
This symposium will explore innovative and diverse strategies for the enablement of low carbon industries in the high temperature metals and materials processing fields.
In particular, the following processes shall be investigated:
- Electrolysis and electrification of metallurgical processes
- High temperature electrolytic routes for metal and alloy production
- Use of hydrogen and other alternative non carbonaceous reducing agents
- Biofuels and other non-fossil reagents for metallurgical applications
- Direct and in-direct use of solar energy in high temperature processing
- Energy efficiency and waste heat recovery concepts applied to pyrometallurgical operations
This symposium will also include a problem driven session illustrating the pathways taken in industry to reduce carbon dependency. Such session will feature invited speakers and include a panel discussion.
