IWLiME 2016: 3rd International Workshop on Lithium, Industrial Minerals and Energy

Posters should be prepared in A0 format (841cm × 1189cm) and be vertically oriented. Oral presentations should be 15 minutes long, including time for questions.

ORGANIZED BY:

This scientific-industrial activity is aimed at researchers and professionals from industry and academic institutions as well as to postgraduate students and post-docs.

Aims and Objectives

The objective of this workshop is to present recent research developed in this region and the world on issues of energy, industrial and strategic minerals, with emphasis on lithium and solar energy.

The realization that the largest lithium reservoirs in brines are located in a very small region encompassing North-west Argentina, Northern Chile and South-west Bolivia has brought a lot of attention to this region. The academic researchers in this region are trying to generate a new focal point of industrial development for the region.

TOPICS

  • State of the art on the geology and hydrogeology of salt lakes and brines
  • New processes for obtaining lithium compounds and other industrial and strategic minerals
  • Analysis of the potential environmental impact of current and future mining technologies
  • Synthesis of new lithium compounds
  • Energy storage and lithium batteries
  • Thermal energy storage
  • Photovoltaic conversion technology
  • Solar energy applied to industrial processes and water treatment
