Summary

Advancing the science of recycling, recovery and reuse of industrial materials and byproducts represents a multifaceted challenge for researchers. Resource efficiency has become a major topic on the political agenda throughout the world and has served to prioritize materials recycling as part of effective resource management strategies within industry and academia alike. This is reflected in increasing interest in resource efficiency, as commodity prices have steadily increased and geo-political issues around access to strategic resources arise again. Moreover, increased environmental pressure, including climate change, will increase interest in recycling as part of the environmental and waste management toolbox. Edited by Dr Ernst Worrell of Utrecht Univeristy, Editor-in-Chief of Resources, Conservation and Recycling and composed of strictly edited, multidisciplinary expert articles, this work directly addresses this research challenge, fostering comprehension not only of currently deployed industrial practice from a professional / user perspective, but within context of the underpinning resource conservation, waste reduction and sustainable development. Portrays recent and emerging technologies in metal recycling, by-product utilization and management of post-consumer waste Uses life cycle analysis to show how to reclaim valuable resources from mineral and metallurgical wastes Uses examples from current professional and industrial practice, with policy implications and economics, to present a real-world portrait useful to engineers and professionals as well as academics
