IMWA 2017: MINE WATER & CIRCULAR ECONOMY, LAPPEENRANTA, FINLAND
Wolkersdorfer, C., L. Sartz, M. Sillanpaa, and A. Hakkinen (eds).
International Mine Water Association (IMWA), ISBN: 978-952-335-065-6, 2017

The theme of the IMWA 2017 Congress—"Mine Water & Circular Economy"—was represented in 243 oral and poster presentations. A circular economy "closes the loop" of product lifecycles by improving recycling and re-use; hence, valuable materials, such as metals, fertilizers, or adsorbents for wastewater purification, can potentially be extracted from mining wastes and mine water. The proceedings are published online at https://www.imwa.info/imwaconferencesandcongresses/proceedings/300-proceedings-2017.html.
