“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.
Location: Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Hosted by: Patrick R. Taylor, Colorado School of Mines

ABOUT THE TOPIC

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:

  • Thermal plasma synthesis of ultra-fine ceramic powders from minerals
  • Reactive thermal plasma spraying of specialty coatings
  • Closed-top cyclone treatment of radioactive wastes

High-temperature oxide electro-reduction and metal recovery from residues through leaching.
