Sustained research of the process technology for the production of refractory metals


Project monitoring:

Dipl.-Ing. Dr.mont. Christian Hoy

The first part of the Research Studio Austria “Sonder ME” comprises a comparison of all existing processes from the primary and secondary production of refractory metals and ferro-alloys. One constriction is the description of processes which are applied in Austrian companies. In addition to the listing of the processes, data is gathered for mass and energy balances. Finally, the resulting balances are evaluated in terms of technology, economy and ecology. A comparison of the primary metallurgy with the secondary metallurgy is of great interest because the processing of secondary raw materials conserves natural resources and decreases the demand for energy and various additives…
