Summary

Extractive Metallurgy brings together, in a single volume, processes for the production of metals from their different sources. The current practices and future challenges in extractive metallurgy are presented, with strong emphasis on the technical aspects of current practices. The book will summarise general principles and practices involved in metallurgical extraction that are essential to metallurgists. The book covers thermodynamic arguments used for extractive process description and development, and mass transfer processes. Information on resources of metals, their occurrences, trends in their utilisation, and resources processing are also included. There is also comprehensive coverage of pyrometallurgy. From an environmental viewpoint, the book also considers energy utilisation, pollution and recycling relevant to the metallurgical field. There is a complete list of references and a selection of example calculations and sets of problems.
