4th International Bauxite Residue Valorisation and Best Practices Conference

Oct 11 - Oct 13, 2022, VIRTUAL EVENT

Welcome to the home page of the 4th Bauxite Residue Valorisation and Best Practices Conference. On this edition we want to communicate the efforts that have successfully reached already high technological readiness. And by doing so, accelerate the industrial use of bauxite residue.

We are looking forward to meeting you ONLINE in October!

JUST A FEW WORDS

About the event

All these years we have seen bauxite residue as a resource and an opportunity. During the 1st, 2nd and 3rd BR conferences we have verified that it is also a source of innovation and ideas, as well as a material that unites scientists from around the world.
