It is an honour and a pleasure to be the Honorary Chairman of this 4th Symposium on Iron Ore Pelletizing organized by COREM in the beautiful Quebec City. Having organized the 1st Symposium in 2003 when working at COREM, it particularly touches my heart to see this event becoming a tradition in the pelletizing world. This meeting attracts experts from all over the world and is an excellent opportunity to share knowledge and enjoy networking. The iron ore business has and is still facing challenges. Continuous R&D efforts allow exploring new ideas and improving understanding which translate in increased productivity, improved product quality and energy savings. Thanks to COREM for taking the lead in organizing this Symposium.
