Vincent visits South Africa

Vincent Canaguier, a PhD Candidate at NTNU, visited MINTEK for the Chrome Colloquium the 20th and 21st of June 2017.

During his stay, he presented his work on reduction and carburization of synthetic chromite.

In his own words: ‘One of the challenges in research is to reach the proper audience. With the Chrome Colloquium in Johannesburg, I feel I had a chance to meet most of the stakeholders in this field. This was also an opportunity for spot-on questions and valuable feedback from my peers. This trip was a chance to discover the impressive furnaces of the MINTEK labs and meet researchers from this institution. I am now truly looking forward to my next visit in South Africa, for the upcoming INFACON XV conference.’

Vincent also visited Johannesburg’s museums and suburbs to learn more about South Africa’s recent history.
