Nickel, cobalt and platinum group metals are key elements for materials processing. They occur together in one book because they (i) map together on the periodic table (ii) occur together in many ores and (iii) are natural partners for further materials processing and materials manufacturing. They all are, for example, important catalysts - with platinum group metals being especially important for reducing car and truck emissions. Stainless steels and CoNiFe airplane engine super alloys are examples of practical usage.

Rather than simply describing the processes and reactions involved in metal extraction, this book concentrates on fundamental principles to give readers an understanding of the possibilities for future developments in this field. It includes a review of the basics of thermodynamics, kinetics and engineering principles that have special importance for extractive metallurgy, to ensure that readers have the background necessary for maximum achievement. The various metallurgical unit processes (such as roasting, reduction, smelting and electrolysis) are illustrated by existing techniques for the extraction of the most common metals. Each chapter includes a bibliography of recommended reading, to aid in further study. The appendices include tables and graphs of thermodynamic qualities for most substances of metallurgical importance; these are ideal for calculating heat (enthalpy) balances and chemical equilibrium constants. SI Units are used consistently throughout the text.

The Book Attempts To Present A Comprehensive View Of Extractive Metallurgy, Especially Principles Of Extractive Metallurgy In A Concise Form. This Is The First Book In This Area Which Attempts To Do It. It Has Been Written In Textbook Style. It Presents The Various Concepts Step By Step, Shows Their Importance, Deals With Elementary Quantitative Formulations, And Illustrates Through Quantitative And Qualitative Informations. The Approach Is Such That Even Undergraduate Students Would Be Able To Follow The Topics Without Much Difficulty And Without Much Of A Background In Specialized Subjects. This Is Considered To Be A Very Useful Approach In This Area Of Technology. Moreover The Inter-Disciplinary Nature Of The Subject Has Been Duely Brought Out.While Teaching Concerned Course(S) In The Undergraduate And Postgraduate Level The Authors Felt The Need Of Such A Book. The Authors Found The Books Available On The Subject Did Not Fulfill The Requirements. No Other Book Was Concerned With All Relevant Concepts. Most Of Them Laid Emphasis Either On Thermodynamic Aspects Or On Discussing Unit Processes. Transport Phenomena Are Dealt With In Entirely Different Books. Reactor Concepts Were Again Lying In Chemical Engineering Texts. The Authors Tried To Harmonize And Synthesize The Concepts In Elementary Terms For Metallurgists.The Present Book Contains A Brief Descriptive Summary Of Some Important Metallurgical Unit Processes. Subsequently It Discusses Not Only Physical Chemistry Of Metallurgical Reactions And Processes But Also Rate Phenomena Including Heat And Mass Transfer, Fluid Flow, Mass And Energy Balance, And Elements Of Reactor Engineering. A Variety Of Scientific And Engineering Aspects Of Unit Processes Have Been Discussed With Stress On The Basic Principles All Throughout. There Is An Attempt To Introduce, As Much As Possible, Quantitative Treatments And Engineering Estimates. The Latter May Often Be Approximate From The Point Of View Of Theory But Yields Results That Are Very Valuable To Both Practicing Metallurgists As Well As Others.

From “a first-rate writer in the fascinating tradition of Junger and Krakauer” (Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall), a sweeping account of civilization’s complete dependence on copper and what it all means for people, nature, and the global economy. A SWEEPING ACCOUNT OF CIVILIZATION’S COMPLETE DEPENDENCE ON COPPER AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR PEOPLE, NATURE, AND OUR GLOBAL ECONOMY COPPER is a miraculous and contradictory metal, essential to nearly every human enterprise. For most of recorded history, this remarkably pliable and sturdy substance has proven invaluable: not only did the ancient Romans build their empire on mining copper but Christopher Columbus protected his ships from rot by lining their hulls with it. Today, the metal can be found in every house, car, airplane, cell phone, computer, and home appliance the world over, including in all the new, so-called green technologies. Yet the history of copper extraction and our present relationship with the metal are fraught with profound difficulties. Copper mining causes irrevocable damage to the Earth, releasing arsenic, cyanide, sulfuric acid, and other deadly pollutants into the air and water. And the mines themselves have significant effects on the economies and wellbeing of the communities where they are located. With Red Summer and Fools Rush In, Bill Carter has earned a reputation as an on-the-ground journalist adept at connecting the local elements of a story to its largest consequences. Carter does this again—and brilliantly—in Boom, Bust, Boom, exploring in an entertaining and fact-rich narrative the very human dimension of copper extraction and the colossal implications the industry has for every one of us. Starting in his own backyard in the old mining town of Bisbee, Arizona—where he discovers that the dirt in his garden contains double the acceptable level of arsenic—Bill Carter follows the story of copper to the controversial Grasberg copper mine in Indonesia; to the “ring” at the London Metal Exchange, where a select group of traders buy and sell enormous amounts of the metal; and to an Alaskan salmon run threatened by mining. Boom, Bust, Boom is a highly readable account—part social history, part mining-town exploration, and part environmental investigation. Page by page, Carter blends the personal and the international in a narrative that helps us understand the paradoxical relationship we have with a substance whose necessity to civilization costs the environment and the people who mine it dearly. The result is a work of first-rate journalism that fascinates on every level.

Flash Smelting: Analysis, Control and Optimization deals with the analysis, control, and optimization of flash smelting. This book explores flash smelting in general and Outokumpu and Inco flash smelting in particular, and also presents a mathematical description for the flash smelting process. A set of mass and heat balance equations that can be used to describe steady state smelting under autogenous or nearautogenous smelting conditions is developed. This text has 20 chapters and begins with an overview of flash smelting and its products; the main raw materials of copper flash smelting; chemical reactions in the flash furnace; impurities in the concentrates that are fed to the flash furnace; and the operation of industrial flash furnaces. Attention then turns to Outokumpu flash smelting, Inço flash smelting, and mathematical representation of flash smelting. The chapters that follow focus on the effects of blast preheat on flash smelting; the combustion of fossil fuel in the flash furnace; and the effect of matte grade on the fossil fuel, industrial oxygen, and blast preheat requirements of flash smelting. Equations are used to determine the effects of such factors as concentrate composition, blast temperature, and dust carryout, and as the basis for optimizing and controlling the flash smelting process. This book will be of interest to both mathematicians and metallurgists.
