The Institute of Nonferrous Metallurgy at the University of Leoben, as the only university research institution in Austria working in this field, is involved in a large number of varied tasks. Emphasis is placed mainly on the mass-produced metals (Al, Cu, Zn, Pb, Mg und Sn), precious, refractory and special metals (technology metals) as well as ferro alloys. In addition, the integration of materials technology with recycling plays an important role. Within these areas we have specialized in the following main topics, which are currently being addressed within the framework of large research projects as well as dissertation projects.
