Can Mining make the World a greener Place?

Mining for new metals and minerals is vital to green technologies including solar panels, wind turbines and electric cars. Precious metals power our mobile phones and laptops. How does this fit with sustainable green futures? Can we even source enough of these metals to support this? Join an international panel of experts as they discuss our growing demand for new technologies, and the natural resources we need to create them. BBC science presenter Professor Iain Stewart will host a live debate on mining and its role in society. Together, we'll imagine how the planet could look in 2050 and discover how we can all play a part in creating the world we'd like to live in. Pitch your ideas and pose questions to the experts. 

This event is held in partnership with the EU-funded INFACT project, exploring innovative, non-invasive and acceptable exploration technologies. Join and find out more about the event series here:

Minerals in the Loop

Metals have a bright future as key enablers of the energy transition. But, metals are locked into more and more complex deposits and their optimal extraction requires a perfect understanding of the impact of geology and mineralogy on downstream processing. This conference is organized by the consortium of the EMerald master in Resources Engineering and will stop at twelve of the most exciting places around the world to discover recent innovations and listen to insightful talks. Every two hours, panel discussions will allow you to interact with experts on a diversity of themes. This tour around the world is also the opportunity to reunite with the EMerald alumni and find out what they have been up to since their graduation.
