HiTeMP Forum - Zero Carbon High Temperature Mineral Processing

HiTeMP Forum

Zero Carbon High Temperature Mineral Processing


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

The Zero Carbon High Temperature Mineral Processing Forum brings together companies, researchers, investors and policy makers to scope further action on decarbonising the mineral processing sector. After the overwhelming success of the first Forum, further activities are planned.

Outcomes of the 2018 Forum

The forum reached an expert consensus on the following key questions:

  1. Success: What would successes look like in the path to reducing carbon emissions for heavy industry in 3, 10, 20 and 40 years?
  2. Key Opportunities: What opportunities have strong potential for CO2 mitigation for relevant high temperature industrial processing using:
    1. Renewable energy
    2. Any other process
  3. Barriers: What are the key barriers to the uptake of renewable energy or other low-carbon processes into high temperature minerals processing?
  4. Enablers: What role do government, researchers and industry play in enabling the pathway to decarbonise heavy industry?
  5. Pathway: What role do lower temperature process within the mining and minerals processing sectors, play in the path to enabling low carbon production with high temperature processes?
