Abstract

Grinding a material reduces the particle size and causes a mechanochemical effect on the material, resulting in interaction with other substances nearby the material. When other chemical and/or physical operation is combined with the grinding, the process has a lot of potential to create new material and recycling processes. Several processes developed for recovering metals and energy sources from different types of wastes are put forward. These include hydrogen electrodes in Ni-H battery, catalysts, etc. Grinding has a lot of potential as a useful technique and process for recovering materials and energy sources from wastes when it is combined with other operations. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering-7 and 19th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering CHISA 2010 (Prague, Czech Republic 8/28/2010-9/1/2010).
