Brazil Conference on Remineralization!

Brasilia Conference on Remineralization

From September 21-24, 2009, the Brazilian Conference of Rochagem will be taking place in Brasília. With the help of various Brazilian Institutions, the congress will cover topics on the most recent cutting edge research, as well as regulation and mineral production for soil remineralization to form a coherent policy making strategy. The conference will be attended by Carlos Cristan and Alberto Machado, our international coordinator in Brazil as well as many agrogeologists from Canada and South America. The conference is being sponsored by Petrobras and other companies and government agencies and it is organized by researchers from the University of Brazil.
