Marine Mining for Critical Minerals

Tuesday, 7 May
Technical / Poster Session
Key to the energy transition are reliable supply of critical minerals. Tremendous progress has been realized in the last few years to source reliable supplies of green energy minerals such as nickel, cobalt, copper and rare earth elements. This session showcases resource potential, field tested mineral collector and lift systems, exploration vessel optimization, seafloor drilling, sediment plume monitoring, and ship to ship transfer challenges.
