MRS/E-MRS joint student chapter, Hasselt University with IMO-IMOMEC: 2016 materials science lecture series: advanced materials.
Speaker: Dr. Stuart Turner - Research, development and innovation manager Aurubis Belgium.
Topic: industry lecture - Copper: the conductor of the past, present and future
Chaired by: Prof. Dr. Ken Haenen, IMO-IMOMEC, Hasselt University

Aula H5, building D, Hasselt University, Campus Diepenbeek.
In this talk, I will introduce the world of copper mining and refining by means of the specific history of the Aurubis Olen site, which dates back to the early 20th century. Further, I will demonstrate the countless possibilities and applications of the material in modernday life, like electric vehicles, wind mills, batteries and heat exchangers . Finally, we will elaborate on the need for a "conductor of the future" with specific enhanced materials properties, and we can brainstorm on the possibilities to synthesize it.
