  • Non-dispersive Extraction Separation of La(III) and Nd(III) Ions from Nitrate Solutions: Mass Transfer Modeling
  • Performance and quality maintenance of copper extractants
  • Copper extraction from a low grade copper ore through a novel combined process in Congo
  • Effect of residual polyacrylamide in copper PLS on the performance of Mextral 984H
  • Test and application of bio-oxidation technology in copper heap leaching of arid and cold regions
  • A new phase dispersion and superior phase separation system
  • Study on Mextral 923A modified Mextral 507P

The conference ended by a banquet which included performance of Chinese Dances. Previous conferences were in China in 2013 and 2014 and next conference will be in DRC in September 2016.
