Event Details


MAY 2018

To prepare for an energy and carbon-constrained future, leading mineral processing and refining companies have already started to decarbonise.

The Zero Carbon Minerals Forum 2018 will bring together companies, researchers, investors and policy makers to scope further action on decarbonising the mineral processing sector. If you are interested in reducing the costs and CO2 emissions associated with mineral processing, you don’t want to miss this.

At the forum, we will identify through expert opinion and discussion:

  • the drivers, barriers and opportunities for decarbonisation
  • emerging low carbon technologies
  • high value pathways.


  • Opportunities to become more globally competitive
  • Metal reduction, particularly for iron and steel
  • Calcination, particularly for alumina and cement
  • Zero carbon fuels and materials, including hydrogen, syngas and oxygen


The forum is organised by:

Centre for Energy Technology at the University of Adelaide

and is supported by:

Speakers include

  • Dr Cédric Philibert, IEA
  • Prof Gus Nathan, Centre for Energy Technology, University of Adelaide
  • Prof Christian Sattler, DLR
  • Prof Ellen Stechel, Arizona State University
  • Prof Peter Ashman, University of Adelaide
  • ARENA, and industry specialists

Who should attend

  • Mineral processing industry
  • Clean technology providers
  • Researchers in low carbon engineering
  • Clean energy investors
  • Policy makers 

University of Adelaide

The University of Adelaide is one of Australia’s leading research-intensive universities and is consistently ranked among the top 1% of universities in the world. Established in 1874, it is Australia’s third oldest university with a strong reputation for research and teaching excellence, and producing graduates that make an impact on the world.

Centre for Energy Technology

Low carbon process heat research is led by the Centre for Energy Technology (CET), the University of Adelaide’s research and technology development hub for clean, reliable, affodable energy. Our aim is to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions and accelerate society’s transition to carbon neutrality. We work with industry to reduce emissions now, by retro-fitting innovative technologies to existing systems, and by developing new carbon neutral and carbon negative technologies to replace existing heat, power and fuel production systems. Our track record includes:

  • 12 thermal energy technologies developed to commercial implementation
  • 170 papers published each year in leading international journals
  • 2 patents registered each year, on average
  • 115 academics, researchers and PhD students across the disciplines of engineering, sciences, business and economics.

The CET is already investigating how to integrate concentrating solar thermal (CST) energy into the highly energy-intensive Bayer alumina process, in a $15.1 million project funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), industry partners including Aloca of Australia Ltd, and research partners.
