High temperature metallurgical industry and the engineering materials recycling industry face unprecedented challenges for sustainable development as 1) environmental issues are becoming increasingly significant, 2) raw materials and energy are becoming more scarce and prices rise and 3) customers expectations of product quality continues to surge. This symposium addresses fundamentals, concepts and the implementation of improved or breakthrough high temperature metallurgical processes as well as technical solutions to collect and treat or extract the highest quantity of one material to be recycled that address these trends. Presentations covering theoretical concepts, modeling, laboratory and industrial experiments and implementation are solicited. The aim of the symposium is to gather the leading scientists and engineers from all over the world to discuss the latest developments (or advancements) of sustainable metallurgical processes. Topics of interest for the symposium include: (1) Improvement and new concepts for liquid metal processing (steel as well as non-ferrous metals), targeting higher energy and resource efficiency; (2) Product quality control (consisting of elemental impurity, non-metallic inclusion and microstructure control) and its correlation with high temperature metallurgical processes (3) Valorisation of high temperature metallurgical residues (4) technical solutions to characterise a secondary raw material in order to validate its quality fulfilment (sorting, analysing, recognition techniques,…) (5) technical solutions to collect, treat, extract, sort or homogenize secondary raw material in order to fulfil the material production industry quality requirements.
