The aim of this course is to offer an outline of the technologies employed in the processing of raw materials. By raw materials we mean solid georesources with a market value destined for use in industry. Knowledge of the properties of solids shall be the starting point for the identification of the best physical and mechanical process techniques to adopt to obtain a raw material. The operations that shall be considered include solid separation and treatment methodologies based on the physical and mechanical properties of the materials. Some of the most important examples of mineral processing for the production of primary materials shall be examined, and at the end of the course the students shall be able to design a treatment plant on the basis of the knowledge acquired during the course.

The students should develop the ability to identify the best methodologies to apply in order to obtain a free substance that can be used as a raw material from natural resources. The student shall have the possibility of testing the physical and mechanical properties of some minerals/rocks in the laboratory and by means of different separation methodologies to reach a valuable yeld of the desired substance. At the end of the course, the students shall be able to plan a process treatment obtaining the free raw material from the additional components to which it is connected in nature. The analysis and observation capacities acquired over the three year degree course shall be necessary for this purpose.

Concepts on raw materials. Solid georesources production and economic layout. UE guide lines on soustainability Sampling - Concepts on liberation of the grain, yield and concentration - Separation and recovery efficiency Physical and mechanical main properties - laboratory test methods General concepts pertaining to comminution. Alternative and rotating crushing machines; roller mills, impact crushers, milling, general concepts and technologies pertaining to screening industrial classification in a fluid medium, by fall, counter-current, mechanical, centrifuge, the pneumatic classifying systems, sink-float separation, hydraulic and pneumatic table flotation, magnetic separation, electric separation Natural stones and aggregates - laboratory test for CE marking of natural stones and aggregates - the weathering of natural stone – the ageing tests – in situ measurements Examples of mineral processing plants: minerals for the glass, ceramic and refractory industries, limes and cement, gold, suphides, coal ,iron.

In the lecture rooms: theory lectures. Practical exercises shall be carried out in the laboratory on: sampling, particle size analyses, differential comminution, magnetic separation, densimetric separationin fluid medium, flotation, mechanical strength of rock samples, determination of the physical properties of stone materials. Visits to industrial plants are planned in order to allow students to understand the real complexity of a treatment plant. The last part of the course will be devoted to the design of a process plant that will be presented during the final lesson.

Modalità di esame: Elaborato scritto individuale; Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
The final evaluation is the average of the following two phases: 1) the project of treatment will be presented online by each group on the last day of the lesson, to the colleagues of the course and to the experts called by the teacher (time for each presentation: 15 minutes). Its rating will weigh as much as 50% of the final vote. 2) Each student must upload on the website of the course at least two days before the final examination a report on one of the didactic visits and a second report on one of the laboratory exercises carried out. The vote attributed to the reports will weigh for the remaining 50% of the final vote.
