Summary

Subject is focused on theoretical aspects of non-ferrous metals, iron and steel production by present technological methods. Attention is paid to non-ferrous metals production by pyrometallurgical and hydrometallurgical processes, to pig iron production including alternative ways of its production, and to technology of steel production, refining and casting.
