The present symposium is dedicated to Prof. Kozlov Pavel's achievements, the key specialist in the sphere of non-ferrous metallurgy.
Pavel Kozlov, 70, graduated the Metallurgical Faculty of the North Caucasian Mining and Metallurgy Institute, a leading Russian Center of higher education in the area of non-ferrous metals. After Institute he began to work at the plant that produced a number of non-ferrous metals: zinc, cadmium, indium, lead and copper. He has got a big practical experience as engineer-metallurgist and found out the problems of metallurgy. He supervised the work of Waelz plant. Then became to work in VNIItsvetmet Institute, the USSR leading institute of metallurgy. He managed the laboratory of zinc metallurgy, took Doctor's degree.
Pavel Kozlov has developed the processing technologies of metallurgical wastes, containing zinc, cadmium, lead, indium, tin, copper.
The wastes of non-ferrous and ferrous metallurgy, chemical industry are subjected to recycling with extraction of valuable components.
The main scientific-and-technical idea, used in the recycling technologies of metallurgical wastes, is the distillation separation of elements of complex oxide systems in the reducing conditions in the rotary tube kilns.
In addition, Pavel Kozlov developed the technology of fumes processing in the alkali solutions. In contrast to traditional technologies of fumes processing in acidic mediums, during electrolysis the alkali solutions of zinc allow producing the finely dispersed zinc powder. He developed hydrometallurgical technology of indium powders production by disproportionation method.
Using the rotary kilns, for the first time in the metallurgy, it was proposed to use the reagents with feeding both in the loading zone of kiln and through unloading zone.
Pavel Kozlov is one of the founders of the new metallurgy trend - steam metallurgy. The source of steam is the waste-heat boilers, the design of which was developed with the participation of Pavel Kozlov and used for cooling of off-gases of tube kilns.
In 1998 after thesis work defense he was awarded the academic title of Doctor of Engineering Science.
Hereafter the principle direction of scientific work is the development of theoretical basis, technologies and equipment of energy-saving environmentally benign treatment processes of zinc and polymetallic sulphide and technogenic raw materials and concentrates.
The low-waste environmental safe pyro-hydrometallurgical technologies of processing the oxidized and sulphide zinc raw materials, developed by authorship, scientific management and direct creative participation, have been introduced in a large Zinc Plants in Russia, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Turkey; Chelyabinsk, Almalyk, Riddersk, Ust-Kamenogorsk and Vladikavkaz Zinc Plants, Cinkur (Turkey).
In 2000 two patents were awarded with gold and silver medals at the "Eureka 2000" Exhibition of Inventions (Brussels). In 2013 in the group of authors Chelyabinsk Zinc Plant was awarded with silver medal at the "Metal-Expo" International Exhibition (Moscow).
In 2001 according to Russian Federation Presidential Edict, the title of honor "RF Honored Inventor" was awarded.
In 2002 and 2014 in the group of authors the title of honor "RF Government Prize Winner of Science and Technology" was awarded.
In 2010 according to Russian Federation Presidential Edict, the title of honor "RF Honored Worker of Science".
At the present time Kozlov Pavel is a member of editorial staff of Non-ferrous Metals Journal and a member of Academic Council for defense of Ph.D and doctoral thesis of Gintsvetmet Institute.
The list of scientific works includes 353 among them: 9 monographs, 246 articles and proceedings, 98 patents.
ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS
A round table discussion open to everyone interested will be organized at a specific date and time during the symposium. It will be a platform for high level representatives of various industries, technologies, and academic disciplines to freely discuss and debate all topics of this symposium, and identify positive and efficient pathways towards sustainability in industrial practices, technologies, and research.
You are cordially invited to actively participate in this symposium by submitting and presenting a paper, or by attending the round table. We look forward to meeting you at the Cyprus, October 2019.
