"Comminution must be the key mineral processing technology during the next 50 years." - Prof. Alban Lynch (August 2013)
MEI's Comminution conferences are established as the main events for profiling cutting edge research and innovation in all aspects of crushing, grinding and ultrafine grinding in the minerals industry.
We strongly encourage a good balance between industrially based and academic research papers showing the benefits of basing practical application on scientific rigour, such as the industrial validation of models and control techniques.
Draft papers were published as an unrefereed Proceedings on a USB memory stick, and selected papers will be published, after peer-review, in a special Comminution issue of Minerals Engineering journal.
On Sunday 15th April, Grinding Solutions Ltd hosted a free seminar "The Journey from Mineralogy through Validation to Control and Optimisation", an open event catering for both MEI Comminution ‘18 conference attendees and any other industry professionals.
Comminution '18 was organised by MEI in consultation with Prof. Aubrey Mainza.
