Scope For many products, there is a significant mismatch between the technical needs for responsible treatment of secondary and byproduct materials and the ability to achieve economically feasible operations. These feedstocks are generally low value and can be quite complex due to the significant variation in properties leading to potential mismatch among complexity, regulations and available resources. This symposium will provide a forum for papers exploring the valorization of secondary and byproduct feedstocks including for batteries, electronics, and other complex secondary materials as well as recycling technologies. Those papers providing perspective on both the technical as well as policy-based challenges are encouraged to submit.
