“Extractive Metallurgy Principles Applied to the Synthesis of Value-Added Materials, Waste Minimization and Recycling”
Date and Time: Tuesday, March 14, 1:45 to 2:30 p.m.
Attendees benefit from Patrick Taylor’s overview of extractive metallurgy techniques and principles, which are essential tools when addressing technology for the synthesis of value-added materials, waste minimization and recycling. Various laboratory scale experiments are described, illustrating applications of pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy and electrometallurgy to these resource recovery opportunities.
Examples to be discussed:
High-temperature oxide electro-reduction and metal recovery from residues through leaching.
Patrick R. Taylor is the George S. Ansell Chair Distinguished Professor of Chemical Metallurgy, and director of the Kroll Institute for Extractive Metallurgy, at the Colorado School of Mines.
His research expertise includes mineral processing, extractive metallurgy, chemical processing of materials, thermal plasma processing, recycle and waste minimization. Taylor is a registered Professional Engineer.
