The 7th Workshop on Reactive Metal Processing (RMW7)

The 7th Workshop on Reactive Metal Processing (RMW7) was held from March 16 to 17, 2012, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, USA. The RMW, a workshop on material processing, is held in collaboration with industries and universities worldwide and has been jointly organized by Prof. Toru H. Okabe of IRSCM and Prof. Donald R. Sadoway of MIT since March 2012 at Cambridge 2006. Fifty-nine people from various countries such as the USA, Canada, Norway, and Japan, attended the 7th workshop. From IRSCM, 13 people, including core members, foreign cooperative researchers, and graduate students participated in RMW7.

During the two-day workshop, eminent professionals delivered presentations on hot topics such as production/recycle processing of rare metals and advanced materials for batteries, which are essential for a sustainable society. Participants actively engaged in discussions as well. The RMW is a leading workshop in facilitating international research activities in the field of reactive metal processing.
