||These are very common unit operations throughout the metallic and non-metallic mining industries. This can involve chemistry as simple as water removal at low temperatures, to the separation of moisture from bound hydrated compounds, to various high temperature chemical reactions to make subsequent operations easier. This type of unit operation has rarely been considered in a single symposium, so we have here a unique opportunity for interactions, both within TMS and with sister societies.
||Planned: A print-only volume
