Virtual ICARD 2021

Virtual ICARD 2021 | Meeting Challenge through Innovation

September 21-23

As part of the International Network for Acid Prevention (INAP) mandate to proactively lead global best practice in acid and metalliferous drainage (AMD), it provides the initiative and leadership to deliver an International Conference on Acid Rock Drainage (ICARD) every three years.

As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 2021 ICARD conference scheduled to be held in Brisbane in September 2021 has been postponed until 2022. The time gap between gatherings was considered by INAP’s Board and Operations Committee to be significant in terms of losing connections with industry and maintaining momentum for advancing the state of practice. To address this gap, INAP is proud to host a virtual conference September 21-23, 2021. The theme of the 2021 ICARD is “Meeting Challenge Through Innovation”.

The virtual event will be hosted in addition to the 12th ICARD, scheduled for September 2022 in Brisbane, Australia.
