Practice-oriented models are essential when teaching economics to engineering students. This chapter will discuss how to set and solve the applied scientific task of processing technogenic mineral reserves. Tools will be offered relating to engineering geological, economic, and mathematical sciences, as well as to form a group of students with various specialties. Experiments will aim to find solutions to these tasks with a generalized gradient method. This chapter will use evolutionary algorithms to calculate ad valorem MET rates. Technogenic raw materials are of economic interest to extract valuable components and produce finished goods. Often, the content of valuable components in technogenic deposits (TD) exceeds the content in natural fields. While secondary mineral resources harm the ecosystem, it is impossible to prevent environmental risks due to the lack of subsoil use. Differentiated rates will be selected based on maximum MET capacity on all valuable components extracted from deposits provided that each deposit is considered an investment project for the stated problem.
