15th International Conference on Bulk Materials Storage, Handling & Transportation ICBMH 2026, Fremantle, Western Australia


Sponsorship packages are available, for further information.

The storage, handling and transportation of bulk solid materials are major activities for a vast number and variety of industries throughout the world. These range from the gentle handling of very small quantities of material in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries to the vast quantities handled and processed by the mining and mineral companies. This diversity is particularly evident in Australia where the wide-ranging nature and scale of operations is somewhat unique. This 15th International Conference on Bulk Materials Storage, Handling and Transportation follows in the tradition of the previous conferences in the ICBMH series, dating back to 1983. Advancements continue in the development, research and implementation of the many aspects of bulk materials storage, handling and transportation. This conference will provide an excellent forum for practitioners, researchers and designers to come together to review and exchange ideas. The 15th ICBMH conference will be held at Rydges Esplanade Hotel Freemantle, located in Western Australia. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to participate in the conference and look forward to welcoming you to Western Australia in July, 2026..
