To meet its twin objectives of encouraging recycling and alleviating waste disposal problems associated with mineral and metallurgical processing, the Bureau of Mines conducts a varied and extensive research program. This program is conducted about 85 pct in-house and 15 pct in universities, colleges, and technical schools. Industrial input concerning program content is sought through contacts with trade associations, such as the National Association of Recycling Industries and the Institute of Scrap Iron and Steel, as well as with individual companies. Other sources of input include academia and other governmental organizations. The Bureau's program includes basic, long-range research to advance technology in recycling. Broad based input to this program results in real world needs being addressed.
