Annotation -
The subject is focused on physical-chemical and thermodynamic analysis of pyrometallurgical and hydrometallurgical processes used in the production of metals from ore and waste material. Practical utilization is currently demonstrated on diagrams of non-ferrous production and waste treatment.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

utilize existing metallurgical processes of metals recovery from ore and/or waste materials and also to propose new methods suitable for recycling common or specific metal-bearing wastes.
