Institute for Nonferrous Metallurgy and Purest Materials
At the Institute for Nonferrous Metallurgy and Purest Materials research and teaching comprise the field of nonferrous metallurgy. Important topics in research and education are production, refining and recycling of nonferrous metals. Moreover the activities are focussed on the development of new hydro- and pyrometallurgical processes and facilities to extract nonferrous metals und to recycle metal-based materials. Additionally processes for the crystal growth of semiconductor materials are determined and developed.
