Second Announcement and Call for Abstracts
The utilization of indigenous resources, as an idea and a strategy, holds considerable currency these days. It conjures notions of self-sufficiency; it also challenges us to explore neglected resources at our doorstep, and, urgently, to find viable—possibly novel—ways for extracting value from these resources under constrained circumstances. Conventions are changing. New resources such as waste or minerals in low-grade settings slip into focus. The processing of existing resources such as energy from fossil fuels, the culprit fingered in global warming, is being constrained by ever tighter emission controls. Industry will simply have to work more efficiently with resources that are, and in a manner that is, technically challenging. Fluidized beds and the technologies they inhabit, by their flexibility, can meet these challenges. IFSA 2017 will highlight the challenges and measures available to overcome them.
