The Pyrometallurgy technical theme is one of four technical themes for Extraction 2018 and consists of two symposia:
B-1: The 7th International Symposium on Advances in Sulfide Smelting
B-2: The Peter Hayes Symposium on Pyrometallurgical Processing
The 2018 International Advances in Sulfide Smelting Symposium, held within Extraction 2018, will provide a forum for papers that relate to advancements in all aspects of sulfide smelting technology, including the basic principles, technology, and current operating practice. To enhance growth through shared competencies and technological cross-fertilization between related fields, the organizers are soliciting papers from authors who are engaged in the analysis, development, and/or operation of high temperature processes that involve the production of metals, metalloids, and alloys through sulfide smelting. Papers that describe innovative methods for achieving impurity separation and removal, by-product recovery, waste minimization, and/or energy efficiency are particularly welcome. Also of interest are papers that discuss the various technical, economic, and environmental issues.
