Solid waste is the production, life and other activities generated in the loss of the original use value, or if not lost use value, then an abandoned solid or semi-solid, placed in containers of gaseous objects, substances. After certain treatment or processing, the useful substances contained in solid waste can be extracted and continue to play a role in the industrial production process, and some solid waste can also be changed into new energy or resources. Solid waste resource utilization refers to the process of extracting elemental resources with recycling value from solid waste through physical or chemical treatment processes such as smelting, extraction, electrolysis, and purification, and further processing and producing them into products. The treatment of solid waste can be roughly divided into two categories. One is the recycling of solid waste. For example, the electroplating sludge of precious metals is refined through multiple procedures such as dehydration, concentration, smelting, and purification. The other type is harmless treatment, which mainly reduces the amount of hazardous waste through incineration, landfill, materialization, and eliminates the pollution attribute of waste. Therefore, different solid waste resources need to be treated in different ways.
In this context, this Special Issue mainly focuses on bringing together separation and purification technologies in the field of separation and extraction of solid waste resources, including leaching, adsorption, extraction, precipitation, solidification, etc.
