Symp.) (, in my capacity as President of SIPS 2024 (Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit), I am personally inviting you to participate as an author/speaker dedicated to honoring the lifetime achievements of Mr. Sergio Leite. Mr. Leite is a very well-known professional with deep rooted impact in Advanced Sustainable Iron & Steel Making. This major symposium focuses on Ironmaking: Blast Furnace, Direct Reduction, Steelmaking: BOF, EAF, LMF, Chemical and transport properties of slags, metals, fluxes, etc., Process modeling and simulation (CFD), Recycling, waste treatment, slag recycling, dusts, Raw Materials Processing: Coke, Iron Ores, Fluxes, and Environmental: CO2 emissions. These and many others are among the topics of the symposium.

This symposium is part of SIPS 2024, Sustainability through Science and Technology Summit / Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit to be held in Crete, Greece from 20-24 October 2024 in Out of the Blue Resort and is in whole dedicated to Modern Hellenism and in honor of Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Prof. Avram Hershko. The summit's website is given here ( SIPS has been organized yearly since 2003 and it is based on the concept of FLOGEN Sustainability Framework that I was invited to deliver at the United Nations Meeting in Geneva in February 2022 ( SIPS is deeply science-focused and technology & engineering-oriented, organized by the not-for-profit corporation FLOGEN Stars Outreach (, which is dedicated to achieving sustainability through science and technology. It incorporates summit plenary lectures from well-known speakers that address the links between scientific, technology and engineering domains in the pursuit of sustainable development, as well as specific science, technology and engineering symposia that feature technical presentations with the same goals in mind: Many Nobel Laureates have confirmed their participation and many well-known Academics, Engineers, Managers, Directors, CEOs, Medical Doctors, Lawyers, Economists and Politicians.
