NMIC Seminar: By-products from industrial processes
This presentation "By-products from Industrial Processes – A Potential Substitution for Primary Mineral Resources" by Dr. Jürgen Antrekowitsch of Montanuniversitaet Leoben, Austria, was given at the NMIC Seminar Series on September 10, 2019.
Dr. Jürgen Antrekowitsch is Chair of Nonferrous Metallurgy at Montanuniversitaet Leoben, Austria. He studied metallurgy at the University of Leoben. He earned his doctoral degree in 2004 in the field of recycling of steel mill residues. Afterwards he was employed as postdoctoral research fellow at the Chair of Nonferrous Metallurgy, University of Leoben for the development of recycling strategies of Zn-, Pb- and Fe-containing residues. Since 2005 he has also been active as consulting engineer in the field of nonferrous metals recycling. In 2010, he became associate professor at the Chair of Nonferrous Metallurgy and was from 2011 to 2018 the director of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Optimization and Biomass Utilization in Heavy Metal Recycling. Since 2018 he has been responsible for a multi-disciplinary consortium, developing assessment strategies for metal bearing by-products. His field of research is the recycling of complex residues out of metallurgical industry, focusing on dust, sludge and slags.
