Special Issue "Sustainable Mineral Processing Technologies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018)
The increasing demand for metals and their environmental impacts of production are being recognised by the mineral industry. There has been progress made, in terms of reducing energy, greenhouse gas, water and waste from mining, mineral processing and metal production using new novel technologies. However, there are still significant differences between the theoretical, minimum level that is practically possible, and the current state of specific energy, carbon, water and waste footprints per ton of mineral or metal products. Innovation and technology have key roles in closing this gap, such that any operation can achieve production with optimum inputs and reduced environmental impacts, which have consequent potential reductions in cost. Minerals is planning for a Special Issue focusing on sustainable processing technologies used in mining, mineral processing, and metal production.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
