Metal flows and recovery of metals from urban and mine

CSIRO Cutting Edge Science and Engineering Symposium, 2019 • Clayton, Victoria Australia


Artem Golev

Research Fellow at The University of Queensland

Talk summary

Australia generates significant urban waste and enormous amounts of mine waste every year. While being different in nature and content, both waste streams have a potential for higher metal recovery, driven by a complex set of environmental, economic and regulatory factors. This presentation will overview metaluse and circulation in the Australian economy, highlighting some opportunities for capturing additional value from waste. In the mining sector, combining waste reprocessing and metal recovery with better practices in mined land rehabilitation is potentially one way to unlock the value of waste, addressing both environmental and economic concerns.
