In electroplating, powders can be a very bad thing, but sometimes bad can be good. We are going to discuss doing a ‘bad thing’, but doing it consistently well.
Topics: metal powders
Electrocoagulation (EC) is an electrolytic process that is used mostly for wastewater and industrial process water treatment. Due to its unique ability to remove contaminants such as emulsified oils, suspended solids and dissolved metals, electrocoagulation has become one of the fastest growing technologies in this area. There are various devices and systems that comprise the basic principle of electrocoagulation which I would like to explain in this article.
1. What is electrowinning?
In a world which is increasingly demanding sustainability, nonferrous metal recycling has become a very important practice. Opting for recycling does not only mean being responsible towards the environment and reducing the carbon footprint, it is also a very reasonable business in industries that rely on using non-renewable resources.
Objectives of advanced green technologies
Advanced green technologies (AGTs) refer to a group of practical methodologies and materials based, among others, on non-toxic chemical processes, clean energies, and environmental monitoring to slow down or correct the negative impact induced by human activities.
Taking a closer look at worldwide copper production statistics we found that some of the biggest copper producing countries do not necessarily refine the copper at home. The reasons for this depend on various factors. We wanted to find out how much of copper is not actually refined in the same countries from which it was mined.
Lab tests such as this are an ideal way to demonstrate the recovery capabilities of emew for a variety of electrolytes and feed materials. In most cases, these tests can be done right at your site so you can see the results for yourself.
This particular test is to demonstrate the recovery of copper cathode from a copper sulphate feed solution. We can test a range of feed materials to recover not only copper, but also silver, nickel, tin and others. This copper sulphate solution was prepared ahead of time and roughly 3L transferred to the feed tank.
Modern mobile technology offers tech professionals various ways to stay on top of things when it comes to equipment news, technology updates, or resource price fluctuations. We gathered together five mobile applications that can help metal and wastewater professionals keep up with rapidly changing industry trends.
