Metallurgical Chemistry

Speaker at Chemistry World Conference 2021 - Fathi Habashi
Laval University, Canada
Title : Metallurgical Chemistry


Metallurgical Chemistry gives a brief history of the development of metal extraction technology, then discusses the metal and mineral industries, and physical and physicochemical methods of enriching ores. Various methods of recovering metals from ore: hydrometal­lurgy, pyrometallurgy, and electrometallurgy--are thoroughly detailed. It covers the theory of metallurgical reactions, and reviews pollution problems in the metallurgical industry. It provides an overview of the field that may be useful to persons in a number of disciplines. It will serve as a review for mining, metallurgical, and chemical engineers, as well as geologists and mineralo­gists. For chemists working in related fields such as refractories, fertilizers, organic solvents, or synthetic resins, and for chemistry students.


Fathi Habashi Professor Emeritus of Extractive Metallurgy, born in Egypt, holds a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from Cairo, Dr. techn. from Vienna, and honorary degrees from Oruro in Bolivia, Saint Petersburg Mining Institute in Russia, Technical University of Engineering in Lima, and  San Marcos University also in Lima.  He held the Canadian Government Scholarship in Ottawa, taught at Montana School of Mines, then worked at the Research Department of Anaconda in Tucson, Arizona before joining Laval in 1970. Habashi desired to develop an integrated understanding of extractive metallurgical processes and to put them into a systematic order within a historical background. He was a Guest Professor in a number of universities and published some textbooks on metallurgy. He edited Handbook of Extractive Metallurgy in 1996 in 4 volumes.
