I would like to draw your attention to the session Applied Clay Sciences (ET04; see description below) that will be held during the International Conference on Minerals & Materials Sciences (Italy, 24-26 July, 2018 — www.mms.events). The abstract deadline is 28 February, 2018.
The MMS conference is a venue where scientists from around the world are presenting their latest research on all aspects of applied mineralogy and materials sciences.
I would appreciate if you could please distribute this information. And apologies for possible cross posting!
Warmest wishes for a joyful Holiday Season and a New Year!
SESSION ET04 — The session will host contributions dealing with applications of clays and clay minerals to health, earth and environment: industrial utilisation; clay product preparation (including mineral extraction, mineral processing and modification of clay properties); chemical, mineralogical, geochemical and physical properties and behaviour of clay minerals related to applications in the industrial production (ceramics, construction materials, refractories, fillers and carriers); the role of clays and clay minerals as process aids (catalytic uses, adsorptive applications, filtering and refining media, drilling muds, etc.), bounding and pelletising applications, foundry moulding.
