In primary smelting as well as in recycling processes the solid remaining materials from several processing units or crashed electronic materials are recycled in order to extract their valuable residual elements. In some actual processes the recycling is done by simply feeding the solid particles into a furnace while the injection of these particles into a bath is also a viable opportunity. In this paper the melting behavior of the slag particles in recycling processes is quantified through an original non-equilibrium physical model that takes into account all the factors that influence the melting behavior of the solid particles such as the slag particle size, temperature, chemical composition and physical properties of both the slag particles and that of the furnace bath as well other physical parameters. The advantages of this physical model related to the increase of efficiency and productivity of these recycling processes are also discussed.
