CDE symposium examines materials processing trends, challenges

Logo: CDECDE hosted a conference this fall to bring the global industry together in a virtual setting.

Across two days, CDE’s Engineering Insights symposium brought the company’s own leaders together virtually with those in the industries it serves, delivering a series of educational presentations and panel discussions covering sand and aggregate processing, construction and demolition waste recycling, industrial sands, mining and wastewater.

The symposium featured nearly 90 sessions involving more than 100 speakers.

“In these unique and challenging times, there are many restrictions that have prevented CDE, our customers and others in materials processing from coming together at industry events to discuss the prevalent issues of the day and the latest technological advances,” says Darren Eastwood, business development director at CDE. “Utilizing our global network, we decided to program the major two-day Engineering Insights symposium, which proved to be a huge success with almost 1,500 industry professionals from around the world registering.

“We firmly believe this shared approach to knowledge and expertise is a better way to aid the progression of the industry,” Eastwood adds.

According to Eastwood, it is important to keep these kinds of discussions going while people cannot come together in the same physical space.

“The challenges facing our industry – sand depletion, water management, sustainable mining and much more – have not gone away,” Eastwood says. “As an industry leader in these fields, we felt a responsibility to convene the very best in the business to facilitate these important conversations.”
