Tin, the most critical element for the future and its sometimes-hidden value in the ULAB

Tin has been singled out by a study of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (“MIT”) as the most impacted metal by new technologies. This presentation will discuss; (i) how this element present in small concentration in the ULAB can be recovered in an efficient way; (ii) how it can have a positive impact on the financial performance of secondary lead operation if properly concentrated during the refining process; and (iii) how JGI Thailand can assist with the optimisation of its valorisation.
