Recent metallurgical research is concerned about the preparation of radioactive metals, with refining rare metals, with acquiring metals economically from low grade minerals, and with the alloys formulation. Tremendous quantities of steels, aluminium, titanium, copper, and nickel composites are utilized for vehicles, ships, airplane, bridges, spacecraft, and buildings.
Corrosion is a dangerous and costly problem. Corrosion threatens the safe disposal of radioactive waste that must be stored in containers for tens of thousands of years, corroded medical implants may cause blood poisoning .There are plenty of methods for protection against corrosion which are in common use, whether by providing a physical barrier or deliberate control of the corrosion reaction.
Mining is challenging field for both machine and human. As the demand for minerals become higher and the sources of useful metals are depleted, reuse and recovery are becomes significant.
