Extractive Metallurgy in the Past Seven Decades.pdf
METALL (2016)
  • Fathi Habashi
The Editor of Metall in Germany asked me to write a review of extractive metallurgy on the occasion of 70th Anniversary of the magazine. It is evident that ferrous and nonferrous metal extraction has advanced greatly in the past 70 years. Examples are the agglomeration and sintering of iron ores, the increased use of fluidized bed, the introduction of flash smelting, the use of oxygen in steelmaking, heap leaching of ores, pressure leaching and pressure precipitation, as well as great improvement in the production of aluminum. Pollution abatement received an increased attention.
