Papers are invited for presentation at Biomining '21. All papers must be written and presented in English, the official language of the conference.

THEMES

Biomining '21 will focus on the latest developments in the field of biohydrometallurgy and bioprocessing: the development, optimisation and application of integrated biomining process operations for mineral ores, including low grade and complex ores; the microbiology of biomining and the application of biohydrometallurgy, bioflotation and other technologies to novel resources (such as mine and electronic wastes) and the (bio)remediation of mining-impacted environments.

1. Biomining Process Development:

  • Development and optimisation of biohydrometallurgy processes, including sub-processes of biohydrometallurgy, reactor systems, hydrodynamics and modelling
  • Associated Unit operations, Up- and Downstream processing (including waste management) etc.

2. The Microbiology of Biomining:

  • Microbial ecology and succession, both description and kinetics
  • Microbial consortia and bioprospecting,
  • Certain fundamental aspects.

3. Biohydrometallurgy Applications:

  • Biomining (i.e. Bioleaching, Biooxidation) applications - both heap and tank
  • Novel and potential resources (e.g. electronic and other metallic wastes)
  • Bioremediation applications (e.g. the treatment, prevention and prediction of AMD, metal recovery from wastes etc.)
  • Other biotechnologies in mining and metallurgical industries.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

Short abstracts, of no more than 150 words, should be emailed to Dr. Barry Wills in Rich Text Format (.rtf) by the end of December. Please ensure that your abstracts do not contain Figures, References, Tables or Equations.

DRAFT PAPERS

If accepted, draft papers will be required. These will form the unrefereed Proceedings, which will be available to delegates on a USB stick at the conference. Copyright on these papers belongs to the individual authors, and not to MEI.

FINAL PAPERS

Click to go to Minerals Engineering homepage at Elsevier Science

Final papers should be submitted as soon as possible after the conference. These will be refereed, and, if accepted, published immediately in the first available regular issue of Minerals Engineering, and included in the Virtual Special Issue of the conference on ScienceDirect.

 

ADVANTAGES OF MEI CONFERENCES

This is an ideal opportunity to present your work to an international audience and have your paper published in a refereed journal of high repute.
