Raw Materials & Recycling

Bergamo 01/12/2021



The environmental and economical sustainability of the metallurgical industry depends on the possibility to recover and recycle the metal products after their use. On the other hand, a new challenge is a zero-waste metallurgical process.
Such an approach has to be faced from perspective involving commercial, economic and technical issues. Although recycling is an intrinsic feature of all the metallurgical processes, an efficient circular approach needs to take into account a correct
selection and cleaning of the metallic and glassy-ceramic materials in order to allow their use in the process avoiding or limiting the exploitation and the consumption of the natural resources.
Such a view imposes a multidisciplinary approach where the application of complex mechanical system, innovative chemical plants, electromagnetic devices, biotechnological techniques and managing algorithm even ruled by artificial intelligence (i.e. for scrap selection, removal of the organic burden, extraction of valuable chemical elements etc.) have to be applied.
An efficient action inspired to the circular economy has to take into account a comprehensive vision where the recycling is associated to an efficient material and energy exploitation that implies an overall decrease of the polluting elements and greenhouse gases.




The Meeting will be performed through invited presentations and on the basis of the selection of the abstracts sent by authors and companies interested in sharing their updated knowledge on the following topics. The deadline for the abstract undergoing
the selection is on July 9, 2021, in order to fulfill the final program.
• Scrap
• Scrap conditioning and management
• Recycling
• Tramp elements
• Slag recycling
• Slag valorization
• Recovery of valuable elements from wastes
• Recovery and recycling of the refractories
• Management of the oxide scales
• Treatment of dust
• Sludges
• Biometallurgy
• Biotechnological system for waste treatment
• Heat harvesting for material recovery
• CO2 capture and use




Prospective authors wishing to present are invited to submit a tentative title and an abstract of about 400 words (in English) to the Organising Secretariat by September 15, 2021.


The abstract should provide sufficient information for a fair assessment.
Two ways to submit papers will be available:
• to fill in the form on the Meeting website at

• to send the title and the abstract, together with the requested information (Name and Surname, Affiliation, Mailing Address, Phone and e-mail) by e-mail to: aim@aimnet.it
