The rapid growth of the world economy is straining the sustainable use of the Earth’s natural resources due to modern society’s extensive use of metals, materials and products. An astute and conscious application and use of metals, materials and products supported by the reuse and recycling of these materials and end-of-life products is imperative to the preservation of the Earth’s resources. The realisation of the ambitions of sustainable use of metals, materials and resources demands that the different disciplines of the material and consumer product system are connected and harmonised. This conference will discuss all aspects of material and metal usage by considering for example (but not exclusively):

"My participation was the fourth to beautiful Falmouth to attend this conference [Sustainable Minerals '16], and as usual I enjoyed a lot its overall pertinence. So rendez-vous taken for Sustainable Minerals '18."
"What a privilege to have been there [Sustainable Minerals '16! Yes, indeed!! I am most inspired by the calibre of the young people presenting with the variety of topics their approaches and perspectives and it really does give me hope for a sustainable future for our planet!"
"Again, another great conference [Sustainable Minerals '16] with high quality presentations highlighting innovative approaches and solutions that contribute to sustainability and the opportunity to meet and engage with all the delegates."
"Many thanks again for a wonderful conference [Sustainable Minerals '16] in a wonderful location. Also excellent to see other work that is being done in the mine waste characterization / rehabilitation field and the wider opportunities presented by efficient resource utilization."
"Very interesting and stimulating presentations and discussions - both informal and formal. It was great to meet researchers with a common interest and, despite the relatively small number of delegates, I made many more useful contacts than I normally tend to do at larger conferences. If you are interested in "closing the minerals to metals systems loop", with a view to enhance sustainable development of these non-renewable resources, this is the conference [SRCR '14] to attend!"
"Just a word of thanks for an excellent conference [SRCR '14], one of the best that I ever attended. A friendly atmosphere and interesting interaction among participants. They are also great networking opportunities especially for young researchers."
"Many thanks for organising such a wonderful conference [SRCR '14]. Look forward to returning in a couple of years time."
"It was a pleasure meet all of you in Falmouth and I would like to come there next time. It was my first time in any MEI Conference and I liked SRCR '14 so much. It has been a great meeting to share interesting research and I take advantage discovering a great area of Britain."
"I spent a really nice time in Falmouth [at SRCR '11] thanks to Barry, his family but also all the other delegates. Organization was just perfect. Social events as well. At this occasion, I met a lot of interesting people, friends and learnt a lot from all the presentations. Mine was the first at MEI and I really enjoyed it. Hope to meet you again at SRCR '14..."

I was impressed with well organization, and Falmouth is very nice place. Thank Dr. Wills and his family for organizing good conference. I hope to participate again."
"Thanks Barry to you and your team for all the hard work in bringing the conference [SRCR '11] together. Great conference after-hours activities and I thoroughly enjoyed myself over the full three days."
"I'm sure that SRCR '11 was a great opportunity to increase my network and to get know more about research lines focused on a "sustainability thinking"... so important for the future of mining industries... I'm so glad for it and I hope to be able to attend SRCR '16!"
"This was my first participation in a MEI event, and I must say that it was a truly fruitful and enjoyable experience. I express my gratitude to Barry, Barbara and Jon for their hospitality and the excellent organization of this SRCR ´11, and I will be looking forward to be part of new events. Congratulations as well to all the participants, for the high technical level of their works. I had an excellent opportunity to meet new people, and I expect to be in touch with all of them."
