Competences

The RecycleMyPhone PSL-Week course addresses the problem of secondary resources, i.e. recycling and urban mining. It discusses in a technical way the process of chemical extraction of metallic elements from two important streams which are electrical and electronic devices (WEEE) and waste batteries (laptops, cars).

Important aspects of metal recycling and the main thermal (pyrometallurgy) or wet (hydrometallurgy) technologies currently used for the recovery of metals/elements, as well as emerging technologies and industrial risks will be covered.
