Advancements in exploitation of critical metals from alternative resources

Aiming to a resource-efficient, low-carbon, and sustainable society, metals or metal compounds are critical raw materials to green and advanced technology. In contrast to their great importance, these metals are in high risk of supply disruptions. It should be emphasized that a fast-depletion of critical metal reserves has made it more difficult to maintain their continuous supply to their respective area of applications. Therefore, extensive research on the new methods development and engineering processes for their recovery from various resources has become immensely attractive to metallurgical researchers and industries. In particular, their recovery from resources other than their main mineral resources like low-grade ores, tailings, industrial wastes, and end-of-life materials, among others. This Special Issue targets recent advancements to fulfil the knowledge gaps in the characterization, processing, and recycling of critical metals from various types of alternative resources. It includes the broader aspects of all the metallurgical branches i.e., pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, biotechnology, and electro-metallurgy.
