The Christian Doppler Laboratory for Extractive Metallurgy of Technological Metals under direction of Ass.Prof. Stefan Luidold, which is established at the Chair of Nonferrous Metallurgy of the Montanuniversitaet Leoben and funded by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy aims in collaboration with industrial enterprises on the one hand at the development of applicable technologies and process routes for the reclamation of these elements from so far unused particular sources (unconventional ores, residues, scraps, used consumer goods) and on the other hand at extension of the limited knowledge about their behaviour in diverse process steps. The latter constitutes an excellent base to broaden the range of economically and ecologically exploitable resources. Ultimately, this should encourage the position of the highly developed Austrian industry.
