Topic: Conservation & Development: Industrial Learning in Non-Ferrous Smelting


This lecture will present thoughts and experience on the following issues in Non-Ferrous Smelting: conservation and its corollary waste; development; industrial learning curves. Waste occurs in many shapes, be it losses of material, loss of health, loss of ability or knowledge. Development in non-ferrous smelting over the last decades has changed many a flow sheet, but also ended many projects. Operations have adapted to new processes and new conditions.

This is demonstrated in impressive learning curves. But, where are the new processes for tomorrow? It is hoped that the attending metallurgist will be able to do his homework and extract the proposals to some of the challenges ahead.
