about this item

WEEE Recycling: Research, Development, and Policies covers policies, research, development, and challenges in recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The book introduces WEEE management and then covers the environmental, economic, and societal applications of e-waste recycling, focusing on the technical challenges to designing efficient and sustainable recycling processes-including physical separation, pyrometallurgical, and hydrometallurgical processes. The development of processes for recovering strategic and critical metals from urban mining is a priority for many countries, especially those having few available ores mining.

  • Describes the two metallurgical processes-hydro- and pyro-metallurgy-and their application in recycling of metals
  • Provides a life cycle analysis in the WEEE recycling of metals
  • Outlines how to determine economic parameters in the recycling of waste metals
