Contents Notes
chapter 1 Introduction -- chapter 2 Generation and Composition of Various Metal-Containing Industrial Wastes -- chapter 3 Conventional Metal Recycling Techniques -- chapter 4 Recycling of Electronic Waste -- chapter 5 Recycling of Energy Storage Wastes -- chapter 6 Recycling of Metal Production Wastes -- chapter 7 Recycling of Solar Electricity Waste -- chapter 8 Recycling of Thermal Power Generation Wastes. "Although many available metal recycling methods are simple and fast, they are also expensive and cause environmental pollution. Biohydrometallurgical processing of metals offers an alternative to overcome these issues, as the use of biological means not only helps to conserve dwindling ore resources but also fulfills the need for the unambiguous need to extract metals in nonpolluting, low-energy, and low-cost way. This book covers biohydrometallurgy and its application in the recovery of metals from secondary sources like wastes. It aims to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of different wastes for metal recovery and biological treatment methods that are both environmentally friendly and economically viable.
