INEMET at the “Copper 2019” in context with the COM 2019 in Vancouver, Kanada

Welcome reception
The annual conference COM this year was in context with the Copper 2019, the most important conference in the world of copper. The “Copper” conferences are celebrated every three years at changing locations.

This year it was held from 18th to 21st August 2019 in Vancouver with more than 1000 participants from all over the globe. Over 300 oral presentations were given and about 70 posters were presented. Our own contribution was an oral presentation titled "Investigating the combustion properties of the Top Submerged Lance (TSL) in the ambient atmosphere", which was published in the proceedings Pyrometallurgy (The Phillip Mackey Symposium) with the number 561070.

Beyond the insight into new technological developments in the field of copper technologies contacts were made and deepened with several experts from industry and science. Moreover the course "Copper metallurgy in China" was attended and the traditional way of copper winning from ores was studied in the "Britannia Copper Museum".
