Short Profile (About Edior)

Dr. Jae-chun Lee is currently a Principal Researcher in the Mineral Resources Research Division at the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and an Adjunct Professor in the Resources Recycling Engineering of the Korea University of Science & Technology, Daejeon. Dr. Lee received his B.S.in Metallurgical Engineering, and M.S.and Ph.D.in Hydrometallurgy from Hanyang University, Korea.His research interests are in the area of leaching, separation and purification of metals from the primary and secondaryresources, and materials preparation by aqueous processing. His current research focuses on the recycling of valuable metals from industrial wastes such as waste electric and electronic equipments (WEEEs) by hydrometallurgical routes. He has authored over 250 articles in peer-reviewed journals and has supervised several M.S. and Ph.D. students. He is honoured with several awards and recognitions for his R&D contributions in the metallurgical research. To name a few, Dr. Lee was conferred withthe Honda Award from the Clean Japan Center for the recycling technology of waste printed circuit boards (PCBs) in 1998. Later on in 2008 he was awarded with the Order of Science and TechnologyMerit in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the metal recycling technology in Korea.Dr. Jae-chun Lee is an elected member of Materials and Energy Division, the National Academy of Engineering of Korea (NAEK) since 2012 and is a Foreign Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) since 2013. He is currently an Associate Editor of Hydrometallurgy
