International Mineral Processing Congress (IMPC 2012)
ITS have recently returned from the international mining conference, IMPC 2012, in New Delhi, India at which ITS were represented by Daniel Johnston and Suneil Dua (Spectro Lab Equipment & ITS Distributor). Daniel is pictured left with Suneil Dua and Prof. Richard Williams, Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, UK.
The conference celebrated 60 years of IMPC alongside the theme “Innovative Processing for Sustainable Growth”. More than 1,100 delegates from 42 countries around the world participated in this prestigious conference, held for the first time in India. IMPC 2012 was jointly organized by the Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers (IIME) and the Indian Institute of Metals (IIM), with support from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) and the Ministries of Mines, Steel and Coal, Government of India.
For ITS it proved to be a highly successful exhibition and conference, introducing us to many new contacts from the subcontinent and providing us with numerous opportunities to demonstrate the benefits of process tomography equipment. We were also able to market test our prototype instrument, the electrical conductivity densitometer (ECD) – aka “Gamma Buster” – a non-nuclear method of measuring solids concentrations in a fluid. Interest from within the mining sector has been significant.
