Scope: Sintering is used to agglomerate ores and concentrates prior to smelting. Sintering in extractive metallurgy is facilitated by the formation of a binding phase at temperature and results in the formation of complex oxide phases. This special topic focuses on the sintering of oxide and sulfde ores, concentrates and secondary materials, e.g. chemistry of sintering, sintering process design, practical aspects of sintering, sinter properties and their evaluation, kinetics and modelling of sintering.
