7th Annual PGM Roundtable
26 October 2022
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is pleased to invite you to its 7th Annual Platinum Group Metals (PGM) Roundtable, scheduled to take place on the 26th of October 2022.
As a direct outcome of its 2013 research on the strategic role of PGMs and the Hydrogen Economy, MISTRA conceptualised the annual Platinum Group Metals (PGM) Roundtable. Since 2016, the Roundtable became one of MISTRA’s flagship events, bringing together the stakeholders in the PGM industry to unite around a common vision for the sector. Through the PGM Roundtables, MISTRA has forged many partnerships across the value chain in the sector. It is the formation of strategic relationships that has led to successful engagements, policy dialogue and leading research outcomes.
Further, in 2022, MISTRA launched a research publication on the just transition to a low carbon economy in South Africa titled, A Just Transition to a Low Carbon Future in South Africa (MISTRA, 2022). One of the themes covered in this publication is the role of hydrogen technologies and minerals as enablers for the low carbon transition given South Africa’s vast PGM endowments. The 2022 roundtable seeks to expand on this theme by evaluating aspects of PGM beneficiation that will enable the just transition including hydrogen technologies, sustainable mining, and the geopolitics of mineral beneficiation.
