Worthy honours to Antonio Peres and Norman Lotter, familiar figures at MEI Conferences

Antonio Peres, of Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil, has attended almost as many MEI Conferences as the MEI team, and certainly holds the record for delegate appearances. So we were pleased to hear that the University recently made him an Emeritus Professor.

Lagging not too far behind Antonio in conference appearances is Dr. Norman Lotter, of Flowsheets Metallurgical Consulting Inc., Canada.

Norman was this month one of six recipients of the Fray International Award for Sustainability, at the Flogen SIPS conference in Cancun, Mexico. This award has been established in honour of the distinguished work and lifetime achievements of Prof. Derek J. Fray, Emeritus Professor, University of Cambridge, UK (posting of 18 December 2015), and is to acknowledge the work of various personalities or entities among politicians, corporations and academics for achievements especially related directly or indirectly to science and new technologies for a sustainable development. Norman was honoured with the Fray Award for his contributions to the discipline of Mineral Processing.
Congratulations Antonio and Norman, from all at MEI.
