Abstract
Waste streams generated by mineral, metallurgical, and consumer industries carry in them recoverable metals or minerals of economic or strategic importance. This report summarizes the results of a study identifying the major waste streams, evaluating current practices of waste treatment, and their development requirements. Priorities are identified for the developmental work by assigning weightage factors from economic, strategic, and environmental importance as well as on the lead time that may be required for process development. The study covers the following industries and wastes in the United States: titanium extraction and fabrication, aluminum smelters, chromite-bearing refractory and foundry sand wastes, and spent and scrapped mercury batteries.
