Seminario:
“Sustainable Production of

Energy Transition Raw Materials”

12 de abril, 2024

Salón de Honor Casa Central Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Alameda 340, Santiago, Chile.

SOBRE EL SEMINARIO

Exploraremos a fondo la producción sostenible de materias primas esenciales para la transición energética a través del enfoque detallado en ‘Sustainable Production of ENERGY TRANSITION RAW MATERIALS’.

Los objetivos principales son:

  • Explorar las oportunidades y desafíos en la cadena de suministro del litio y el cobre.
  • Comprender cómo estos elementos contribuyen a la sostenibilidad y eficiencia en la generación de energía.
  • Facilitar el intercambio de conocimientos entre profesionales, investigadores y entusiastas de las energías sostenibles.

Este Seminario estará dedicado a dos recursos fundamentales, el litio y el cobre, y su papel crucial en la transformación del panorama energético actual. Este evento reúne a expertos de la industria para explorar a fondo los desarrollos más recientes y las tendencias que están dando forma al futuro de las energías sostenibles.

EXHIBITORS

Axel Schippers.

Professor Leibniz University of Hannover

Studied biology at the University of Hamburg, Germany, and received his doctor‘s degree in 1998 for a thesis on the sulfur chemistry of microbial metal sulfide oxidation. Afterwards he worked for almost two years as post-doc on sediment microbiology and biogeochemistry in the Max-Planck-Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen, Germany. In 2001 he moved to the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) in Hannover, Germany. Since 2007 he heads the Geomicrobiology unit. In 2006 he qualified as lecturer (Privatdozent) for microbiology and geochemistry at the Leibniz University of Hannover and was appointed as Professor (apl.) in 2011.

Alvaro Videla, Dr.

Alvaro Videla, Dr.

Civil Industrial Engineer from the School of Engineering of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Master of Science and Ph.D in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of UTAH, United States. Director of the Materials Engineering Laboratory and Co-director of the Energy Materials Laboratory.

Lilian Velásquez, Dr.

Lilian Velásquez, Dr.

Ph.D. in Mineral Science from Murdoch University, Australia, and a Metallurgical Civil Engineer from the University of Concepción. Currently Associate Professor at the Department of Mining Engineering at Universidad Católica de Chile. Winner of the 2021 “100 Inspiring Women in Mining” award presented by WIMM Chile. Her research domain area around Hydrometallurgy for the sustainable production of metals. Her research includes the development of hydrometallurgical processes for the extraction of refractory minerals such as black oxides and sulfide minerals in chloride media, as well as the reprocessing of mining waste or passive sites like tailings and dump. Furthermore, she is investigating urban mining, including the extraction of valuable metals from e-waste. Her investigations are oriented toward the sustainable utilization of seawater, microorganisms, discarded salts, and organic chemical agents.
