Sulphur & Sulphuric Acid 2013 Conference

3-4 April 2013 Conference
Sun City, Pilanesberg

The production of SO2 remains a pertinent topic in the South African industry and there is a need amongst producers, consumers, the legislator and other role players in the industry for a forum to discuss relevant issues on the topic.

Due to significant growth of the acid and SO2 production as fatal product and the
increased requirement for acid and SO2 in DRC to process copper and cobalt, these areas have high interest in such an event. To ensure that you stay abreast with all recent developments in the industry.

The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, invites you to participate in a conference on the production, utilization and conversion of sulphur, suphuric acid and SO2 abatement in metallurgical and other processes to be held on 3-4 April 2013, at Sun City, South Africa
