IBAAS has recently organised a three day symposium from Dec 3 to 5, 2012 in Nagpur. The theme of the Symposium was “Bauxite, Alumina and Aluminium Industry of Asia – Vision 2020” with special Sessions on “Non-metallurgical bauxites and alumina products”.
The response to our invitation for participation in the Symposium was overwhelming - over 120 delegates from Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Russia and USA participated in the symposium. About 60 abstracts on various aspects of bauxite, alumina and aluminium industry were received and more than 50 presentations made during these 3 days covering all the aspects of bauxite, alumina and aluminium industry. With the Indian aluminium industry poised for a large expansion with 3 greenfield alumina refineries in the eastern region of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh being either in advanced stage of construction / nearing completion stage and one more alumina refinery planned in Gujarat, the deliberations in the Symposium were found to be valuable for all the participants.
The highlight of the symposium was as follows:
