Increasing consumption, the development of new low carbon and electronic technologies are broadening concerns over future elemental sustainability for a wide range of elements from phosphorous to indium. This issue is rapidly rising up the political, economic and research agendas and this book will tap into this interest to highlight and discuss the problem and current ideas, research and innovation to increase elemental recovery. It covers a multi-disciplinary blend of knowledge from the chemistry, engineering and biotechnology sectors ranging from ionic liquid recovery methods to hyperaccumulation in plants. The editors have a strong background in the utilisation of waste, green chemistry technologies and utilisation of bio-derived resources and this the first book to look at the overall issue, providing a new perspective through drawing together many different techniques for researchers and policy makers.
