Interests: leaching, separation and purification of metals from primary and secondary resources; material preparation by aqueous processing; recycling of valuable metals from industrial waste and waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) by hydrometallurgical routes
This Special Issue focuses on valuable metal recycling through the recovery or removal of metals from all secondary resources, such as E-waste, scraps, slag, tailings, or other similar materials, contaminated soil, and wastewater, using mineral processing, hydrometallurgical, and pyrometallurgical processes. This Special Issue is open to research supported by the R&D Center for Valuable Recycling, funded by the Ministry of Environment, Korea, but we also welcome any academic and industrial articles related with the above-mentioned research subjects.
