Keywords: Energy, Extraction and Processing, Pyrometallurgy
Scope: Pyrometallurgical processes require energy to heat the feed material up to the temperature required for reactions and phase separation to occur. Additionally, pyrometallurgical processes can also require reductants for the desired reactions to proceed. This energy and reductant can be derived from a variety of sources, with hydrocarbons commonly used. This topic focuses on techniques and technology to prevent or significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
