Sensor-Based Sorting Webinar:


May 23rd 2023 11:00am-12:30pm, EDT





The importance of lithium in the green economy cannot be overstated. The steady increase in demand and price has meant that there are many lithium projects under evaluation across the world. The objective of this webinar is to provide guidance to for evaluating whether sensor-based sorting can benefit your operation through lower beneficiation energy costs, reducing iron content before the mill, lowering water and reagent usage, and smaller tailings footprint. TOMRA has long been supporting the lithium industry through the successful application of sensor-based sorting for hard rock lithium producers.

In this educational webinar, lithium companies and service providers can learn about the principles and benefits of sorting for their operations and how to answer the questions of whether sorting it is for you. TOMRA is inviting the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC), Canada’s second largest technology solutions provider to talk about the best way to navigate the application of sorting ensure through the right technology and the right testing regimes. Join us to learn more about the applications of sorting for lithium including examples of practical applications!

This webinar is a joint venture between the Saskatchewan Research Council and TOMRA Mining.
