TMS 2023

The TMS 2023 Annual Meeting and Exhibition is being held March 19-23 in San Diego, California and we will be there! 

TMS 2023 has a strong ESG focus and our ISASMELT™ and ISACYCLE™ technologies will be showcased during this year’s event.

Our team of Dr Stanko Nikolic and Dr Stuart Nicol will be there ready to discuss our smelting technologies and innovations with you. 

ISASMELT™ is low-maintenance, energy-efficient smelting that ramps up to 100% of design capacity in just a few months.

It gives you flexible, clean smelting for the real world and has been producing matte from concentrates and secondary materials for more than 40 years.

During TMS, you can watch Stanko present the technical paper, "Towards Net Zero: Pyrometallurgical Processing with the ISASMELT™ and ISACYCLE™”. To download the abstract, click here

Technical Presentation
Towards Net Zero: Pyrometallurgical Processing with the ISASMELT™ and ISACYCLE™

Date: 20/03/2023
Time: 16:35 - 17:00
Location: San Diego Convention Centre - 29B

Language: English

With the growing global focus on reducing the environmental and social impacts of modern society, many smelters and recyclers are moving rapidly to decarbonise their processes.

ISASMELT™ and ISACYCLE™ can minimise emissions through reduced maintenance, reduced consumables, and reduced equipment wear.

And this paper outlines how we intent to achieve this.
