The MIT, in collaboration with ICMM, is hosting its first Global Summit on Mine Tailings Innovation which aims to foster collaboration, innovation, and actionable solutions for sustainable tailings management.

A first of its kind conference hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in collaboration with ICMM to convene researchers, industry experts, innovators and start-ups, manufacturers, and government and regulatory officials around a single goal: accelerating the development of solutions to Re-use, Re-duce and Re-imagine mine tailings.

With a focus on research that can be rapidly translated to practical applications and technology solutions across any stage of the mining lifecycle, the conference will provide a forum for top global experts to exchange ideas, advance thinking and make progress on significantly reducing tailings that will ultimately benefit people and the planet.

The MIT Global Summit on Mine Tailings Innovation aims to foster collaboration, innovation, and actionable solutions for sustainable tailings management.
