Inspired by the position paper "The Twelve Principles of Circular Hydrometallurgy" (i.e. the recipient of the TMS EPD/LMD Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy Best Paper Award), ICHS gives the floor to world-leading academic and industrial hydrometallurgists to provide visionary lectures on what these principles may mean for the future of hydrometallurgy, knowing that, without metals, there is no transition to a climate neutral economy! The event will take place in the majestic LAMOT Congress & Heritage Centre in the historical city of Mechelen, Belgium.

The Symposium is organised by SOLVOMET R&I Centre in the context of Koen Binnemans' ERC AdG CIRMET project and the Horizon Europe CICERO Project. Furthermore, the Symposium is supported by SIM2 KU Leuven and three other key European projects dealing with (a.o.) circular hydrometallurgy of energy transition metals: Horizon Europe EXCEED & LITHOS, Horizon Europe ENICON.
