The new year is now in full swing. Not only all the resolutions have to be taken into account, at least during the first month - there are also two large fairs just around the corner this year, i.e. the bauma 2013 and the Powtech 2013. For this reason there will be two issues of AT INTERNATIONAL in 2013 (03 and 04/2013), which will only deal specially with these fairs and the products presented there that are relevant for us. In addition to these two large fairs in Germany, the AT INTERNATIONAL English Edition, the purely English edition of our journal, will be represented in Sozopol/Bulgaria at the XV Balkan Mineral Processing Congress and will report on this event.
As in the previous years, this year we will again offer four overviews by Dr. Harder dealing with economic and technical topics – an overview of Africa, trends in dry processing, resource planning of the global players and an overview of Latin America.
Our first issue also contains interesting topics dealing with sorting (p. 28 and 62) and a report on Heraeus quartz glass as well as a comprehensive selection of currently discussed topics in our category Follow-Ups.
I wish you enjoyable reading
Dr. Petra Strunk
Editor-in-chief of AT INTERNATIONAL
