Abstract

There are a large number of serious environmental problems that have received an increasing amount of attention in recent years. Most of them are by-products of our complex technological society and stem directly from our rising standard of living and unprecedented population growth. Their solutions are equally complex and will require a combination of scientific understanding, engineering ingenuity, economic sagacity and political courage. It would be impossible to cover all of these problems in a short time. Therefore, consistent with my interest in process metallurgy, these remarks are limited to the optimization of our dwindling mineral resources with emphasis on the recycling and reuse of scrap metals.
