Ex Mente Pyro Week 2022

Dates: 4-8 April 2022
Format: Training (in-person)
Pyro Community Day (hybrid: online and in-person)
Location: Pretoria, South Africa

We are looking forward to exploring, discovering, and learning together as part of our drive to empower teams in our industry. In the past, we hosted Thermo Week, during which we focused on thermochemistry. Pyro Week has a broader scope, to address more of the needs that we have identified in our pyrometallurgy community. Thermochemistry will still be at the core, but this year we will also wrestle with process kinetics and mass and energy balances.
