To prepare for an energy and carbon-constrained future, leading mineral processing and refining companies have already started to decarbonise.

The Zero Carbon High Temperatures Mineral Processing Forum will bring together companies, researchers, investors and policy makers to scope further action on decarbonising the mineral processing sector. If you are interested in reducing the costs and CO2 emissions associated with mineral processing, you don’t want to miss this.


The forum will seek to reach an expert consensus on the following key questions:

  • What would successes look like in the path to reducing carbon emissions for selected heavy industries in 3, 10 and 20 years?
  • What opportunities are you aware of with potential to introduce a step-change into carbon reduction for heavy industry?
  • Recommended targets to reduce carbon emissions from heavy industry within a time-frame of  2030 and 2050
  • What role do government, researchers and industry play in the pathway to decarbonising heavy industry?
