What makes this book unique is a specific focus on aluminum recovery, rather than just recycling in general. It also offers an integrated discussion of scrap recovery and re-melting operations and includes economic as well as technical elements of recycling. Important topics include a discussion of the scrap aluminum marketplace and how secondary aluminum is collected and sorted, the design and operation of furnaces for melting scrap, the refining of molten aluminum, and the recovery and processing of dross from re-melting operations. This second edition features more information on aluminum scrap pricing and the economics of recycling, the analysis of dross processing methods currently in use by the industry, and drosses produced. The book has been updated throughout to include the most up-to-date information.

ONE OF A FOUR-BOOK COLLECTION SPOTLIGHTING CLASSIC ARTICLES Landmark research findings and reviews in aluminum reductiontechnology Highlighting some of the most important findings and insightsreported over the past five decades, this volume features many ofthe best original research papers and reviews on aluminum reductiontechnology published from 1963 to 2011. Papers have been organizedinto seven themes: 1. Fundamentals 2. Modeling 3. Design 4. Operations 5. Control 6. Environmental 7. Alternative processes The first six themes deal with conventional Hall-Héroultelectrolytic reduction technology, whereas the last theme featurespapers dedicated to nonconventional processes. Each section beginswith a brief introduction and ends with a list of recommendedarticles for further reading, enabling researchers to explore eachsubject in greater depth. The papers for this volume were selected from among some 1,500Light Metals articles. Selection was based on a rigorousreview process. Among the papers, readers will find breakthroughsin science as well as papers that have had a major impact ontechnology. In addition, there are expert reviews summarizing ourunderstanding of key topics at the time of publication. From basic research to advanced applications, the articlespublished in this volume collectively represent a complete overviewof aluminum reduction technology. It will enable students,scientists, and engineers to trace the history of aluminumreduction technology and bring themselves up to date with thecurrent state of the technology.

Magnesium alloys with their unique physical and chemical properties are important candidates for many modern engineering applications. Their density, being the lowest of all structural metals, makes them the primary choice in global attempts aimed at reducing the weight of transportation vehicles. However, magnesium also creates challenges at certain stages of raw alloy melting, fabrication of net-shape components and their service. The first one is caused by very high affinity of magnesium to oxygen, which requires protective atmospheres increasing manufacturing cost and heavily contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. The second challenge relates to very high corrosivity of liquid magnesium towards materials it contacts. This imposes restrictions on the selection of materials used to contain, transfer or process molten magnesium during manufacturing operations. A mixture of unique benefits and serious challenges of magnesium alloys in solid and liquid states described here makes the book very useful for a broad audience of scientists and engineers from academia and industry.
