Int. Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology (MPT-2006)
Chennai, India, March 8-10, 2006

In keeping pace with rapid advances being made in mineral processing technologies, an International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology (MPT 2006) was organized during 8-10th March 2006 at hotel Taj Coromandel, Chennai, India jointly by National Metallurgical Laboratory (CSIR) and Tata Steel under the aegis of the Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers (IIME). Steep increase in the consumption rate of metals and minerals over the last few decades have necessitated the effective utilization of low grade finely disseminated ores and recycling of waste resources. The challenges faced by the mineral industries have provided an impetus for the development of novel techniques of separation, improved equipment and machinery. About four hundred delegates from different public and private sector mineral industries, mine owners, equipment manufacturers, R&D institutions from India, USA, Sweden, Germany, South Africa, Turkey, Iran, Australia, Korea, Japan and Sri Lanka have participated to deliberate on the challenges facing the mineral industry worldwide. A whole gamut of topics ranging from characterization techniques, comminution, sizing, gravity, magnetic and electrostatic separation, flotation and flocculation, bio-processing, solid-liquid separation, hydrometallurgical processes, flow-sheet development, beneficiation of clays and ceramics, environmental aspects, industrial plant practices apart from recycling of waste resources were discussed during the seminar.

Twenty five eminent experts from fourteen countries have delivered keynote lectures on specialized topics of immediate relevance to the industry. In addition, around 180 contributory technical papers covering a variety of technological issues facing minerals industry were presented over three days of deliberations. A special Indo-Korean work-shop on ‘Waste Recycling’ was also held in collaboration with Korean Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM). Waste Recycling, Utilization of industrial, mining and metallurgical wastes including electronic wastes resulting in value-added by-products was one of the highlights of the conference.

All the papers presented during the seminar were compiled in two volumes and published by Allied Publishers Private Limited, Chennai, India. The Proceedings of the International Seminar On Mineral Processing Technology” with an ISBN number 81-8424-012-0 is available at National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur-831007, India.
