Background

Venue: Fédération Nationale Des Travaux Publics (FNTP), 3 Rue de Berri, 75008 Paris, France.

Environmental issues related to industrial emissions have come to the forefront of general discourse in recent years. The Manganese ferroalloy production is energy intensive and it also contributes to the industrial CO2 emissions. This 4th edition of Manganese school is organized around the theme of Environment/Energy – CO2 emissions to strengthen the dialogue between the industry and researchers in the field to reduce the environmental impact of the process.

PreMa project aims at demonstrating an innovative suite of technologies, involving utilization of bio-carbons, industrial off-gases and solar thermal energy, to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions from manganese production to obtain sustainable production of Mn-alloys and steel. The project is funded by the Horizon 2020 program of European Union, and European and South African industrial partners.

Some prominent industrial partners of the consortium of PreMa project are Eramet, Transalloys, Ferroglobe Mangan Norge AS, Outotec and OFZ working together with excellent research partners SINTEF, NTNU, IETU, Mintek and Stellenbosch university.

Eramet is one of the world’s leading producers of Manganese ferroalloys and Manganese ores. This 4th edition of the Manganese School is hosted in Paris by Eramet in collaboration with SAIMM under the scope of PreMa project. The launch of registration will follow shortly.
