CHAPTER 2

Integration of Traditional Methods for Elemental Recovery in a Zero‐waste Recycling Flow Sheet

The traditional extractive methods for steel, aluminum, copper, zinc and lead, which are some of the basic materials used in human activities, are briefly described in this chapter. In a case study of copper slag, these traditional methods of extractive metallurgy are integrated with utilization of the residual material after extraction, in order to design a complete recycling flow sheet.
