4.4 Recovery of raw materials from End-of-life products
Manufacturing scrap/EoL permanent NdFeB magnet recycling by hydro/pyro-metallurgical processes. Magnet-to-magnet recycling of bounded and/or sintered magnets from HDDs/EVs/HEVs/small electronic equipment. Institutes, Universities and SMEs can participate in the consortium as a partner and/or coordinator.
ESOGU is a state University in Eskisehir Turkey. We will participitate as a Mining Eng. Dept. and Eng. Faculty.
Our research interests: Mineral processing (characterization, comminution, classification etc.), physical/mechanical mineral/metal concentration/separation (gravity/magnetic separation, flotation etc.), recycling, hydrometallurgy (leaching), purification (precipitation), solvent extraction, electrolysis, resource utilization etc.
Recent Research Activities: Extraction of metals from secondary sources. Recycling of metals from mine/industrial wastes and EoL products. Development of sustainable circular economy. Improving energy and material efficiency. Closing metal/mineral cycle.
