This chapter focuses on non-ferrous metals, their resources, extraction and recycling. Mining of these metals (copper, zinc etc.) causes major environmental damage through open mining techniques, and thus improving recycling rates has major environmental benefits as well as potentially economic ones. This chapter thus looks at the recycling technology for these metals and ways in which they can be increased from sources such as dusts from steel scrap processing and electronic wastes. A number of recycling approaches applied to a range of industries are introduced, together with a system approach to increasing Japan’s recycling of valuable metals.
