A database approach to the recycling of rhenium

Laird, G. L.,

1996, p.79-88

Re '97; rhenium and rhenium alloys; proceedings of the

International symposium devoted to the 70th anniversary

of the discovery of rhenium.

Bryskin, Boris D. [editor]

(Rhenium Alloys, Elyria, OH, United States)

International symposium on Rhenium and rhenium alloys.

Orlando, FL, United States, Feb. 10-13, 1997


With the technology of rhenium now well established,

its progress can be enhanced with the awareness of means

to recover it from scrapped sources. The search of databases

for information on rhenium recycling, has generated an

awareness of issues and problems of the field.

Various approaches are considered. Patent literature

spanning 1957-1993, and citations to abstracts of technical

publications on the recycling of rhenium from secondary sources,

over the period 1977 to 1995 were retrieved.
