There is more increasing interest in lithium resources as lithium ion batteries are rapidly becoming the technology of choice for the next generation of Electric Vehicles. In this paper, current status on lithium reserve base, lithium supply and demand is reviewed, and technology for lithium recovery is briefly introduced.

Journal of the Korean Institute of Resources Recycling, volume 19, issue 3, 2010, Pages 9~15
Domestic gold mine tailings, generally, contain a lot of non-metallic silica and clay minerals. These minerals can be separated from the tailings by various physical separation methods and used as raw materials for cements and ceramic products. In these physical separation procedures, metallic complex sulfides, in which Au and metallic constituents such as Pb, As and Fe were concentrated, were obtained as a by-product. These metallic constituents should be removed or separated from the by-product to extract Au efficiently. In this work, removal and separation processes of Pb, As, and Fe from the by-product were investigated. Pb was removed to under 3% by using alkaline oxidative leaching at the leaching condition of
, 2M NaOH, 100psi
, 250r.p.m., 4 wt.% solid and 30 min. leaching time. The leached residue was roasted and separated magnetically to obtain a non-magnetic product contained <0.2% As, <3% Fe and high concentrated Au more than 8,000 ppm.

Coal briquette use has dramatically increased because of high oil prices. Hence, it is necessary to develop an environment-friendly recycling technique of the coal briquette ash. The coal briquette ash contains a large amount of an unburned carbon content and a mullite with high thermal property, so it is considered to be used as raw materials of sintered eco-brick. This study aimed to investigate on how the unburned carbon affects properties of the sintered eco-brick. The eco-brick was mixed with the ratio of 50 wt% coal briquette ash having the unburned carbon 10.5 wt% and 50 wt% cullet, then being sintered at
, which of the compressive strength was in line with the first class of the sintered clay brick standard(KS L 4201). In particular, the compressive strength of the sintered eco-brick was equal to the first class of the KS L 4201 despite the increase of mixing ratio for coal briquette ash with 1.0 wt% unburned carbon to 70 wt%.

In the present work, a new separation system with rotating rakes has been developed to separate the film-based plastics from the recyclable materials, and environment assessment is also carried out during operation of the device. Capacity of the device was about 5.3 ton/hr at a rakes rotation speed of 26.0 rpm (the number of rakes in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd trials were 39, 52 and 48, respectively) and a belt conveyor speed of 38.5m/min, which satisfied the initial design capacity (5.0 ton/hr). Recovery ratio and purity of the plastic films were 92.6% and 96.5%, respectively at a rotation speed of 28 rpm. The levels of noise, vibration and particulate emission were below material standard regulatory limits. Plastic refused fuel (RPF) was also prepared with the recovered films. The calorific value and chlorine content of the prepared RPF were 9,740 kcal/kg and 0.18%, respectively which satisfy the first grade quality specification of the Korean RPF standard. As a result of this work, recovery of energy resources from the municipal solid waste is possible by adopting the developed separation device.

In this study, the possibility of utilizing carbide lime waste, obtained from the generation of acetylene process, as a alkali activator of blast furnace slag cement was investigated. The physical and chemical analysis of the carbide lime waste was studied and three types lime waste in order to investigate behaviour as alkali activator were used. Lime wastes were added 0, 10, 20 and 30 wt.% in blast furnace slag and blast furnace slag containing lime waste were added 0, 10, 30 and 50 wt.% in OPC. As a result of analysis of hydration properties, in the case of calcium hydroxide rehydrated after heat treatment at
, it was higher hydration rate than other specimens. For the results of compressive strength test, when lime waste passed 325 mesh sieve and rehydrated calcium hydroxide were used, it was higher compressive strength than OPC from hydration 7days. At OPC50 wt.%-BFS45 wt.%-AA5 wt.% system using lime waste of 325 mesh under, the highest compressive strength appeared.

Solvent extraction behavior of Sn(IV) from hydrochloric acid solution was investigated using TBP(Tri-butyl Phosphate) as an extractant. The experimental parameters, such as the concentration of HCl solution, chloride ions, extractant, and Sn were observed. Experimental results showed that the extraction percent of Sn was increased with increasing the hydrochloric acid and chloride ion concentration. More than 98% of Sn was extracted in 7.0 M HCl by 10% TBP. The optimum extraction stages of Sn for continuous extraction process was theoretically calculated by analysizing the McCabe-Thiele diagram. Stripping of Sn from the loaded organic phases can be accomplished by NaOH as a stripping reagent effectively and 99.3% of Sn was stripped by 2.0M NaOH solution.

In general, the waste concrete is simply crushed and reused as a recycled aggregate at a low value application such as back filling material. It because that the quality of recycled aggregate is lower than one of natural aggregate due to the insufficient liberation of aggregate and cement mortar. So in this study, the liberation characteristics of liberation of aggregate and cement mortar is analyzed to investigate the limitation of conventional crushing stage at waste concrete processing circuit. In this process, thermal treatment method is evaluated for the enhancement of liberation. From test results, the preferential breakage along the grain boundary is not accomplished by the conventional crushers. It leads a low quality of recycled aggregate and a fracture of aggregate. To solve these problems, gentle breakage is used as a breakage mechanism to induce preferential breakage along the grain boundary. The recycled aggregate produced from the free fall test, which adopts a gentle breakage, shows a better liberation characteristics and a higher quality.

As the demand for paper continues to grow and the importance of recycled paper, white ledgar(WL) and old newspaper pulp(ONP), continuously increase. In addition, usage of recycled paper is essential in terms of forest conservation and environmental protection issues. However, optical and mechanical properties of recycled paper have some drawbacks than regular paper's properties that is indispensable. In order to complement these problems of recycled paper, precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) was synthesized by the In-situ process with a recycled pulp. Depending on the size of PCC is divided into 2 types,
colloid type ultra-fine particle and
cubic type particles. In this study, we analyze how the different shape and size of precipitated calcium carbonate affects in the optical and mechanical properties of the recycled paper used as a filler. Furthermore, we mixed with chemical pulp for overcome reduce of mechanical properties, without using other chemicals, when we use PCC as a filler. The results has the possibility to meet in GR excellent recycling certification mark, standard was proposed.
