Short description:

The book discusses advances in management of industrial and mining waste through circular economy approaches and successful critical metal recovery from secondary resources. It highlights reprocessing of mine waste and tailings for development of critical raw materials that reduce the mining burden to ensure lucrative use of waste materials.

Long description:

Integrating waste management, environmental sustainability, and economic development is a prime milestone in the circular economy. Critical metals recovery from mining tailings and secondary resources has significant potential, with widespread applications in high-tech industries that are critical to modern society and sustainable development. This book discusses technological advances for managing industrial and mining waste through circular economy approaches and successful critical metal recovery from secondary resources. It highlights how reprocessing of mine waste and tailings results in development of critical raw materials that significantly reduce the mining burden and ensure the lucrative use of waste materials.
