Mining for and with the Electric Vehicle

29 - 30 January

The Mining Technology Division (MTD) of the IOM3 associated with the Association of British Mining Equipment Companies (ABMEC) are hosting a conference entitled Mining for and with the Electric Vehicles in London.

Since 2017, factors affecting climate change have influenced car manufacturers to adopt policies to reduce or cease manufacturing of cars using fossil fuels.

This plus the health effects of poorly maintained and polluting diesel engines has affected a much wider audience with mining being no exception. The use of electric vehicles is being rolled out and with it the demand for battery minerals. The focus of mining companies has changed to supplying what is the biggest growth market in a commodity, possible ever.

Manufacturers of mining equipment have quickly taken up the challenge and have started to produce a range of electric equipment powered by direct connection or battery.

Mining companies and manufacturers are actively looking how to supply and process the raw materials that go into battery manufacture, as well as the practicalities and limitations of using electric vehicles in very arduous conditions.

The aim of the conference is to bring together those companies that mine and process battery minerals with those that use the minerals to manufacture batteries and those that use those batteries in electric vehicles. The conference will discuss the current state of supply and development of battery technology and where it is likely to develop.

The conference is a unique opportunity to bring together all three facets that the IOM3 represents and will cover all aspects from the mining and extraction of battery minerals, and the development of materials to produce a cost‐effective clean alternative to the mining process.
