The storage, handling and transportation of bulk solid materials are major activities for a vast number and variety of industries throughout the world. These range from the gentle handling of very small quantities of material in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries to the vast quantities handled and processed by the mining and mineral companies. This diversity is particularly evident in Australia where the wide-ranging nature and scale of operations is somewhat unique.

The 13th International Conference on Bulk Materials Storage, Handling and Transportation will be held at The Mantra on View, Surfers Paradise, located on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Topics include:

  • Storage and handling
    • Bin, hopper, chute, and stockpile design
    • Structural design aspects
    • Feeding and weighing
  • Transportation
    • Belt, pneumatic and hydraulic conveying
    • Road and rail transportation
    • Ship loading and unloading
  • Energy, Resources and Environment
    • Storage, feed and transportation of biomass, agricultural and waste management
    • Characterization
    • Waste utilization opportunities

EDEM users will be presenting a range of topics at this event:
