WEEE Recycling

  • ID: 3744810
  • Book
  • July 2016
  • 234 Pages
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

WEEE Recycling: Research, Development, and Policies covers policies, research, development, and challenges in recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The book introduces WEEE management and then covers the environmental, economic, and societal applications of e-waste recycling, focusing on the technical challenges to designing efficient and sustainable recycling processes-including physical separation, pyrometallurgical, and hydrometallurgical processes. The development of processes for recovering strategic and critical metals from urban mining is a priority for many countries, especially those having few available ores mining.

  • Describes the two metallurgical processes-hydro- and pyro-metallurgy-and their application in recycling of metals
  • Provides a life cycle analysis in the WEEE recycling of metals
  • Outlines how to determine economic parameters in the recycling of waste metals
  • Discusses the socio economic and environmental implication of metal recycling

Chagnes, Alexandre
Dr. Alexandre Chagnes is the author or co-author of 52 open literature publications and 52 conferences in solution chemistry, thermodynamic, electrochemistry and separation sciences, Dr. Alexandre Chagnes uses his expertise in the fields of lithium-ion batteries and hydrometallurgy for managing research programs funded by international companies such as Areva, Renault, Eramet, Prayon, etc. He has recently joined the French energy and electrochemical storage network (RS2E) for working on lithium batteries recycling processes and he is vice-president of the extractive metallurgy section of the French mineral industry society (SIM). He has recently organized with Dr. Jolanta Swiatowska a symposium in New-Orleans (USA) entitled "Lithium Process Chemistry: Resources Extraction, Metal Production and Recycle? in the framework of the 245th ACS meeting and he has recently published a review on lithium battery recycling processes in Journal of Chemical and Biochemical Technology.
Cote, Gérard
ENSCP - IRCP - 11 Rue Pierre et Marie Curie 75005 Paris.

Gerard COTE, senior professor, has been working over thirty eight years in the field of hydrometallurgy. He is currently Deputy Director of the ENSCP in charge of industrial relationships and project leader of the ParisTech Chairs "Nuclear Engineering? and "Urban Mines? supported by AREVA and Eco-syste`mes, respectively. He is author of 170 publications in peer-reviewed journals (130) and proceedings (40) in the field of solution chemistry and separation science and is inventor of 3 international patents.
Ekberg, Christian
Christian Ekberg is a full professor in Industrial Materials Recycling (since 2007) as well as a full professor in Nuclear Chemistry (since 2012) at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. He is also an elected member of the Royal Swedish Academy for Engineering Sciences. The main research focus on the last 25 years has been solution chemistry of the lightest to the heaviest elements in the periodic table (thermodynamics, solvent extraction etc) as well as statistical uncertainty analysis. In later years the focus has started to include recycling processes from various sources as well as the new Gen IV nuclear reactor systems. He has published more than 120 reviewed scientific papers.
Nilsson, Mikael
Mikael NILSSON is an assistant professor in the department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at University of California Irvine. He has more than 10 years of experience in liquid-liquid extraction, both fundamental science and process development. His research spans materials recovery from used nuclear fuel, production methods for medical isotope, radiation damage in liquid-liquid extraction processes, and new routes for rare-earth recovery from mine tailings. He is the former chair of the Separation Science and Technology subdivision of the ACS. At UCI he maintains a group of ~10 PhD graduate students in the UCI Nuclear group and teaches courses in Nuclear Fuel Cycles and Nuclear and Radiochemistry, as well as Advanced Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics and Chemical Engineering Lab classes.
Retegan, Teodora
Teodora Retegan is a researcher (PhD) at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden since 2009 in Nuclear Chemistry and Industrial Materials Recycling group. There she conducts research related to extraction and separation of metals by means of solvent extraction from different streams like: spent nuclear fuel, electronic waste (WEEE), mining industry (primary and secondary sources) and secondary waste from industrial processes. She has been working in close relation with industry and is/has been leading or contributing to numerous projects related to industrial applications. She de facto supervising 3 PhD students in industrial recycling and is referee for 2 more (industrial design and recycling of nuclear waste). She is acting as reviewer for scientific journals and different national or international (European) funding bodies. She is also the recipient of two national Environmental prizes for Strategies for discarding of WEEE, especially smaller electronic devices (2010) from Renova and for Recycling and detoxification of waste fluorescent lamps and CFLs (2014) from The Foundation of King Carl XVI Gustaf's 50th Anniversary Fund for Science, Technology and Environment.
