Meeting 2019 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium REWAS 2019: Secondary and Byproduct Sources of Materials, Minerals, and Metals
Sponsorship TMS Extraction and Processing Division

Scope As scarcity and criticality concerns grow, attention has turned to alternative sources of important materials, metals, and minerals. Circular economy techniques, industrial symbiosis, and urban mining are sustainability strategies for obtaining these materials from industrial byproducts, end of life wastes, and other secondary sources. Which new extraction technologies will be needed to enable this material recovery? What are the latest developments made to the existing processes? What are the economic and environmental impact implications of such alternative routes? What kinds of material flow analysis and/or metric standardization is needed for tracking circularity at multiple scales? A specific session on electronic waste and batteries of all chemistries is planned.
Other REWAS 2019 Symposia include:
- Disruptive Material Manufacturing- Scaling and Systems Challenges
- Rethinking Production
- Cast Shop Recycling Technologies
- Education and Workforce Development

Proceedings note: There will be opportunities to submit to the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy for in-scope submissions (Lead: Dr. Gabrielle Gaustad, RIT).
