Wet processing equipment manufacturer CDE has announced plans to host a virtual trade event for the global materials wet processing industry.

Continuing its engineering insights education series, the major two-day virtual event will take place on October 14 and 15.

Across the two days CDE experts, together with a host of guests and industry figures, will facilitate a series of dynamic, educational, and informative presentations and panel discussions covering multiple sectors, including sand and aggregates, construction and demolition waste recycling, industrial sands, mining, and wastewater. The company believes this shared approach is a better way to aid the progression of the industry.

Hosted live, the discussions will be facilitated across multiple different rooms and stages, each aligned to international time zones, with some dedicated seminars in various languages for greater accessibility.

Interactive question and answer sessions will conclude each presentation or discussion, while breakaway networking chat rooms will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the insights and connect with leading industry experts.

Exploring the topic of construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste recycling, CDE Reco business development head Eunan Kelly will lead discussions about the role of CD&E waste material in the sustainable city agenda, as well as a technical review of the CD&E waste recycling process, an appraisal of the end-use markets and a review of legislation for the use of CD&E recycled materials.

In the mining sector, topics covered will include improving operating economics and profits across various minerals, including gold, diamonds, iron-ore and mineral sands, transforming tailings into high-value product, sustainable mining, and tailings management.

For quarry operators, the two-day event will feature discussions about the benefits of wet processing compared with crushing, how to maximise profitability through water and energy savings in washing operations, manufactured sands, and unlocking hidden value in quarry by-products.

Experts in the industrial sands sector will discuss the topics of sustainable silica sand operations, the demand and challenges in the industrial sands market, contaminants removal, opportunities for materials processors to diversify into industrial sands, as well as sustainable frac sand processing.

The programme also includes panel discussions and presentations focusing on municipal wastewater management, challenges to wastewater solids separation, and the pressures on infrastructure owing to growing urbanisation.

“In these unique and challenging times, there are many restrictions that have prevented CDE, our customers, and others in materials processing from coming together at industry events to discuss the prevalent issues of the day and latest technological advances,” said CDE MD Tony Convery in a statement.

“This is so we can engage with our customers and attendees in real time to look at challenges in the market, processing innovations and applications, and indeed the opportunities that lie ahead,” Convery added.

Registration is free, but places will be limited for some roundtable and seminar sessions.
