Metallurgy is one of the key branches in the Russian industry. Despite a period of economic instability, the steel industry accounts for about 10 billion dollars of exports to the EU countries and the USA. And the share of the metallurgical industry in the Russian export portfolio amounts to about 15 % of the total revenue. In addition to the great importance for the Russian economy, metallurgy is also a science of how metals emerge and how their chemical composition, structure and properties change under the influence of different processes.
In the last two centuries mankind has not only learned how to heat and illuminate its homes with hydrocarbon raw materials, but has also created a new world of substances which nature has not created or not secreted in pure form. People have learned all this through the work and genius of their scientists. History has thousands of names and dates, but we will choose several of them, perhaps not that well known, but no less important than others.
The world's consumption of metals is increasing: according to different estimates, it is up to 1 billion tons per year. Consequently, metal production, in other words mining, is also increasing. The natural resources of metals, especially rare and noble ones, are not so rich. Therefore, the development of technologies of how to recover them from the ground is becomes very important.
