A SimuSage Process Model for the Oxidative Stage of the TSL Process

In recent years, there has been a continuous societal and industrial effort to promote the so-called „circular economy“. According to this paradigm, for producing engineering materials in general, and metals and alloys in particular, the chemical elements which are presently necessary in our economy should not be extracted from the so-called primary ores but instead …
