Recovery of Valuable Metals from Secondary Resources and Their Comprehensive Utilization
With the continuous development of economics and technologies, natural recourses are overly exploited, especially for valuable metals. Maintaining the sustainability of such metals has drawn worldwide attention across raw material supply including mineral, metallurgy, and material processes. The comprehensive utilization of secondary resources is an effective way to relieve its pressure. Thus, this special topic on the “Recovery of valuable metals from secondary resources and their comprehensive utilization” aims to frame experimental data sharing and a comprehensive discussion on the progress of sustainable metal recovery and comprehensive utilization of secondary resources.
This topic invites submissions on scientific discoveries and emerging technologies that enable sustainable recovery, comprehensive utilization, processing, and life cycle assessment of valuable metals from secondary resources. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Metal recovery from spent batteries, spent catalysts, material scraps, and unconventional sources;
- Comprehensively utilizing secondary resources of valuable metals;
- Processing and regeneration of spent batteries and catalysts;
- Thermodynamics, kinetics, modeling, and life cycle assessment of sustainable recycling processes.
Manuscripts that address advances in comprehensive utilization, metal recovery, process optimization, and technology scale-up are a good fit. Papers intended for a broad readership, including research, practical, review, or system analyses, are especially welcome.
