Welcome to EMPRC 2018 in Essen

We are proud to invite you to the first EMPRC – European Mineral Processing and Recycling Congress. It will take place in Essen.

The EMPRC focuses on physical and physico-chemical processing of primary and secondary raw materials and will complement the European Metallurgical Conference (EMC) which took place from June 25 – 28, 2017. The aim of the conference is to gather professionals from industry, universities and research institutions to exchange, analyze and discuss the most recent innovations and developments of our industry.

EMPRC reflects Europe’s increasing interest to secure its raw material supply, to save resources and the environment. Reasons for this development are, among others, highly volatile metal prices within the last decade, formation of monopolies and oligopolies for some raw materials, state run raw material policies of some big producers, high pace of technology development as well as political uncertainties. As Europe’s situation is characterized on the one hand by large industrial output and therefore high raw material consumption, and on the other hand by a limited number of own deposits, the import dependency is generally high. Therefore, besides the processing of primary raw materials, the conference will also focus on the processing of secondary raw materials and the associated specific challenges.
