The benefits of magnesium

Birmingham City University’s annual Magnesium Symposium returns for its second year after a positive response from industry in 2017.

Magnesium Symposyum

Academics, engineers and industry leaders will be heading to Birmingham for a conference that will get participants thinking about magnesium differently. At 1.8 g/cm³, magnesium is the lightest of all structural materials, the eighth most abundant chemical element in the Earth’s crust and is 100% recyclable. On 23 October, Birmingham City University will showcase magnesium as an alternative material, especially for the automotive and aerospace industries in terms of light weighting, fuel efficiency and the circular economy.
