Resource efficient manufacturing through the optimisation of manufacturing and heating technologies

12:00  -  12:25  | FREE to attend, register now

If the right material should be in the right place, then the right manufacturing technology should be used to achieve target shape. Therefore Resource efficient manufacturing is based on three fundamental pillars: selection of the appropriate material, understanding of the part design features, development/assessment of the suitable manufacturing technology, which need to be supported by the risk and cost assessment. […]

Getting to Net Zero: by effectively combining primary and recycled metals

13:00  -  13:25  | FREE to attend, register now

The path to Net Zero is an achievable but narrow one. Electrification plays a pivotal role. Raw material supply challenges and supply chain disruptions have caused serious concerns over the past few years in the e-mobility space. During this talk, we will explore Glencore’s approach towards addressing these concerns.
