Key supply side issues are addressed by central members of the industry and, to complete the supply chain circle, end users and markets presentations are always heated topics of discussion. We’ll be looking at markets both geographic and consumer; flame retardants, hydrometallurgical, refractory, animal feed, environmental and more.
This conference is attended annually by 200-300 delegates with representatives from across the supply chain: magnesite miners, synthetic producers, refractory brick producers and procurement managers from across a slew of end-uses for magnesium compounds such as welding, feed, fertilisers and flame retardants.
