Mining Water Management & Treatment Summit

Wednesday, August 6th - Friday, August 8th


Brisbane, Australia

Save 15% on Registration with Code 1469MEDIA15

Mining in Australia is undergoing a period of intense change, with increasingly volatile commodity prices and tightening environmental regulations. Additionally, shifting weather patterns are leading to more intense floods and periods of drought, and weather events that are harder to predict. With profit margins so tight, and mine water becoming tougher and more expensive to manage, choices among viable mine sites will increasingly be made based on where the water situation is optimal.

As a result, forward-looking mining companies must manage water more effectively in order to stay commercially viable. It’s critical to implement and refine cost effective and sustainable water management systems, to maximize opportunities to reuse water, and to prepare for tightening water regulations. Only those armed with the most up-to-date information and strategies will succeed in a rapidly-changing mining environment.

Following the massive success of Infocast’s Water Management for Mining conference series held throughout the Americas, Infocast is pleased to bring our Mining Water Management & Treatment Summit to Australia.

Berlin, Germany

Representatives from Navigant will be in attendance.  To schedule a meeting at this event, Please Contact Us.

Connecting Evaluators and Implementers of Low Carbon Policies and Programmes
Policies and programmes for increased energy efficiency, energy savings and reduction of GHG emissions are ranked as top priorities by EU, IEA and UN to help the world face the critical issues of climate change and resource conservation.  The increasing focus on energy policy and programmes has resulted in more challenging objectives and growing investment. There is therefore a need to improve the assessment of potential and actual impacts and to really understand what works and what does not.  That’s why high-quality evaluation practices are essential: to overcome the barrier due to the lack of confidence in the results, and to foster experience sharing.

The North American IEPEC (International Energy Program Evaluation Conference) has organized conferences since the 1983 on alternate years. It has become a key event for the evaluation community and peer reviewed proceeding, with thousands of papers, form a rich knowledge base freely available here.

Batteries 2014

Wednesday, September 24th - Friday, September 26th


Nice, France

The market for batteries and their components experiences a strong double-digit for 10 years ans several positive factors should ensure that the rally continues.  Firstly, this growth is based on a continuously changing portable electronics market (laptops, smartphones tablets and now hybrids computers). Secondly, the electrification of the automobile still remains a strong driver. While electric remain a niche, it is a massive one for batteries.

On the other hand, this new market causes the lines to shift and converts the value chain: automakers, not familiar with batteries or power electronics components, want to bring in local suppliers which offer new opportunities to European and American companies compared to their Asian competitors.  On top of that, the energy storage applications are more promising.

For 16 years, the Batteries 2014 event still remains one of the World's most attractive event and the meeting place of technologies (lead acid, NiMH, Li-ion Post), applications (from micro batteries to large format batteries) and of the value chain (chemists OEMs and end users)... Last event in Europe, Batteries 2014 will focus on batteries market issues, latest trends and will allow you to meet new partners and clients!
