Summary

The subject is focused on secondary materials with non-ferrous metals, their basic characteristics, basic treatment techniques and selected recycling technologies. Students will be acquainted with the basic terms from the area waste management and recycling, and possibilities of recycling selected types of wastes and their utilization as secondary raw materials. Among the selected types of non-ferrous metals based waste, which are characterized by complex, include waste aluminum and its alloys, copper scrap, nickel and lead waste. Furthermore, the tin and zinc waste. An integral part is overview of valid legislation relating to this issue. The ecological and economic aspects of the use of secondary raw materials are taken into account, including the issue of heavy metals in various parts of the environment, the limits of metals in water, soil and air and in the work environment. Very important is the prevention of pollution and tools for reduce risk.
