Following on the success of its Eighth International Cadmium Conference held in Kunming, China in 2011, the International Cadmium Association (ICdA) held its Ninth International Cadmium Conference in Lisbon, Portugal on 26th and 27th of October 2016.

This two-day conference was dedicated to Responsible Care Management of cadmium and cadmium compounds and their products. Five wide-ranging and in-depth sessions covered the following topics:

Each of these sessions, presented the latest, in-depth information from the world’s leading experts on cadmium and its compounds, their health and environmental effects, their applications, markets and regulatory status. Particular emphasis was placed on appraisals of the human health and environmental risks that cadmium and its compounds pose, and how the cadmium industry is undertaking responsible care management to mitigate or minimize those risks. Specific items addressed were occupational exposure cadmium control, reduction of cadmium emissions to the environment (soil, water and air), recycling of cadmium-containing products, and safe storage of cadmium-containing wastes. Discussions of applications and markets for cadmium and its compounds emphasized future trends and how regulation of cadmium products might affect future cadmium markets.
