Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student after passing the exam from this subject will gain the following abilities: - Categorise secondary raw materials containing metals, their classification, storage and basic treatment. - Select physical and physical-chemical treatment procedures, pyro-metallurgical, hydro-metallurgical, electro-metallurgical and combined processing of metals containing waste, refining of the obtained products. - Evaluate environmental and economic aspects of use of metals containing secondary raw materials, describe the existing situation in Czech Republic. - Compare heavy metals in individual components of environment, limits of metals in water, soil and atmosphere, in metallurgical plants. - Evaluate recycling of selected waste materials from general metals and their alloys (aluminium, copper, nickel, lead, tin, zinc, germanium), carbides of tungsten and cobalt, and materials based on hazardous waste containing metals (dry galvanic cells, burnt-out light sources, discharge tubes, fluorescent lamps, EKO – VÚK Panenské Břežany, s.r.o.) and materials based on cable and chip containing wastes.
