SIPS-2016 10



FLOGEN successfully organized the 2016 Sustainable Industrial processing Summit and Exhibition held in Hainan Island, China from 5 to 9 November 2016.

The summit honored the 2016 Stars of the closed cycle of materials sciences: from mining and mineral processing to metals extraction and processing, and development of new materials. They were in alphabetic order:

Prof. Harald Oye, Prof. D'Abreu, Prof. Yagi, Dr. Florian Kongoli, Prof. Dubois, and John Starkey

The honorees cover areas of materials sciences that look distinct but are actually related to each other and all have in common sustainability.

The summit was addressed by major figures from industrial companies, politics, university education and Research Institutions from all over the world. Some of them were awarded Fray International Sustainability Award.
