Scope: With the decrease of high-quality primary metal resources around the world, effective processing of secondary resources has become vital. This special topic focuses on pyrometallurgical approaches to processing of secondary resources. The secondary resources in this context include low-grade ores, urban ores (electronic wastes, battery wastes, photovoltaic materials, and other end-of-life products), industrial byproducts and wastes, construction wastes, medical wastes, and organic resources and wastes.
