Every second year the European Metallurgical Conference EMC is celebrated as an international conference and meeting for metallurgists and engineers from the non-ferrous industry and research institutes in Europe. In former conferences delegates from about 50 countries from five continents joint the meeting, presenting papers, posters and discussing actual and most relevant topics during the conference.
The focus of EMC 2019 is dedicated to the interaction of technology, process chains and sustainability. To bring ecology and economy together was a main focus for the last decades. Nowadays the question of continuing improvement with increasing sustainability is the challenge for tomorrow.
EMC 2019, the most important networking conference on non-ferrous metals in Europe, is held in Düsseldorf. It will point out the whole chain of non-ferrous metallurgy, including process technology, analytical aspects and even socio-economic questions of today and tomorrow.
The conference is organized and held by the invitation of GDMB, Society of Metallurgists and Miners, and is particularly directed to companies, institutes, metal producers, plant manufactures, equipment suppliers and service providers active in the field of non-ferrous metallurgy all over the world.
GDMB the Society of Metallurgists and Miners invites 2019 to the 10th EMC in Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine Westfalia and a center of innovation and business. Four metal trade fairs – GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST – will be held in the same convention center together with the European Metallurgical Conference EMC 2019. This will give the participants a comprehensive overview to the state of the art of the wide range of metallurgy.
I cordially wish all the very best for EMC 2019 and hope that many lecturers and participants will find the way to Düsseldorf and the EMC. May they have the chance to upgrade their knowledge and to exchange their experience.
