Department for Mineral and Recycling Technologies at the Technical Faculty in Bor was founded in 1962 and it was called the Department for Mineral Processing. Its goal was to educate Mining Engineers in mineral processing for the needs of the Mining Metallurgy Complex Bor (“RTB Bor”). After establishing another study program in 2002, Recycling Technologies and Sustainable Development, the Department changed the name into Department for Mineral and Recycling Technologies.


The Department incorporates two modules: Mineral Processing and Recycling Technologies and Sustainable Development at all three levels of academic studies: Undergraduate studies, Master’s academic studies and PhD studies.
