View Full Event Details

The biannual symposium is a global forum for experts from academia and industry active in the fields of biomining, bioleaching and bioremediation. These technologies have a high potential to establish environmentally favorable processes for the recovery of primary and secondary precious and base metal resources, as well as the remediation of exploited mining sites.

Covering all aspects, the event is a place to meet with biologists, engineers, and chemists, as well as mining experts to discuss the latest scientific and technological trends. Academics, students, researchers, practitioners, as well as representatives of industry and institutions are invited to discuss their research, develop new concepts, exchange information about innovations and best practice cases.
