Latin America-Europe: Cooperation opportunities for a more sustainable raw materials industry: The EU-AlSiCal project case

January 30February 1

| Hybrid

This workshop is organized by the Association of Iberoamerican Geological and Mining Surveys (ASGMI) with the support of PNO, IFE and the Brazilian Geological Survey (CPRM-SGB). The main objective is to establish a dialogue among different social actors (industry, research, governance, and communities) that allows for obtaining answers to meet the growing demand for Aluminum as a result of the energy transition, in a sustainable manner while maintaining the industry’s competitiveness and profitability, as well as social acceptance. The workshop will also increase awareness of EU AlSiCal proposed technology for the co-production of 3 key raw materials (alumina, silica and precipitated calcium carbonate) with negative CO2 emissions and zero-waste, highlighting its main achievements and way forward. Hence, this event aims to:

  • Discuss different perspectives related to sustainability, stewardship, R&D situation and needs in the Aluminium industry, with focus on alumina production, as well as challenges and roadmap for Aluminium as a raw material essential for the green transition.
  • To provide an overview of new technologies, innovations, and challenges related to the aluminum and other metals industries throughout their value chain, encompassing social acceptance of mining activities, extraction processes, and transformation of the mineral into its final products.
  • Position AlSiCal technology as a supplementary route to the existing alumina value chain. We will address the challenges of turning an unexploited domestic ore (anorthosite) into a sustainable resource for the alternative alumina production and boost symbiotic value chains.
  • Foster future synergies with governance, academia and industry.

The Workshop is freely accessible. Only registered participants will have access to the workshop and the informative material. This event will be organised in a hybrid format. Click here to register.
