ERES 2017

The 2nd conference on European Rare Earth Resources

28-31 May 2017 – PETROS M. NOMIKOS CONFERENCE CENTRE – Santorini, Greece

Details

Rare Earth Elements (REE) is the collective name for 17 chemically similar metallic elements (the lanthanides, scandium and yttrium) that occur in a wide range of REE bearing minerals and are mined collectively. They are usually divided into the light REE (LREE) and the heavy REE (HREE); the latter are found in relatively lower concentrations in the Earth’s crust. Due to their chemical similarities, REE extraction is a technically complicated process, requiring intense processing.

Rare Earth resources have become vital elements in the modern industry. With constantly increasing applications ranging from micro-electronics to wind generators and with very few rare earth mines in operation around the world, the rare earth elements supply and demand is in the global spotlight.

28-31 May 2017 – PETROS M. NOMIKOS CONFERENCE CENTRE – Santorini, Greece

European REE Resources

Following the success of the 1st ERES conference in 2014 and under the framework of the EURARE: Development of a sustainable exploitation scheme for Europe’s rare earth ore deposits FP7 research project and the EREAN: European Rare Earth (Magnet) Recycling Network Marie-Curie Initial Training Network, the 2nd European Rare Earth Resources conference will be held in 2017 in Santorini, Greece.

The Conference will include both geological and metallurgical topics for production of REE from primary and secondary REE resources. The conference will include both oral presentations and intensified poster presentations (3 min presentations in an auditorium). The official language of the conference is English.
