About EAMP 2018

The Conference

EAMP Conference is open to scholars, researchers, experts from the industry, state administrators and partner organisations that are active in mining, processing of mineral resources, and waste disposal or reuse in relation to environmental protection. The conference represents a platform for the exchange of practical experience on new technology, international projects, and research and development. This way, time is devoted to discussions on the topical issues that the stakeholders in the fields of mining, mineral processing and waste reuse face worldwide.
