The mining of metals causes drastic environmental pollution and irreversible changes in our surroundings. Still, our society and technological development are dependent not only on basic metals, but also precious metals and rare-earth elements. The only way to decrease mining activities and their environmental impacts is to enhance metal recycling and develop sustainable and inexpensive technologies for the recovery of so-called critical metals from secondary resources, including ashes, slags, mine tailing, electronic waste, wastewaters, and various other industrial side streams. The aim of this Special Issue is to introduce novel advanced methods for metal recovery from secondary resources.
