The Hydrotransport conference uniquely brings together operators, designers and researchers to focus on the challenges in transporting solid/liquid mixtures in a manner that is environmentally responsible, cost-effective and efficient.
This 20th edition of the event, held in 2017, featured a renewed emphasis on challenges including:
Water usage and environmental implications of; mining, mineral processing, oil and gas production and pipeline integrity.
- Using alternative sources of energy to supplant, or at least complement, the use of hydrocarbon resources.
- Developing and testing of new materials that provide improved resistance to wear and corrosion.
- Advancing and deploying powerful computational models.
