The INTPART Metal Production Project aims at strengthening ties and growing networks internationally through joint research and education projects. The three-year project is hosted by the Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) and funded by the Norwegian Research Council (NRC) and NTNU. The participating institutions are NTNU and SINTEF in Norway, and MINTEK and the University of North-West (NWU) in South Africa. The two focus areas of the project are fundamental reaction mechanisms for reduction processes and the use of carbon materials in metal production.
The project resulted from the two SAIMM Schools on Manganese Ferroalloy Production hosted in 2012 and 2016.
The chairperson's report for both schools can be accessed to gain insight.
