Technology Lecture on Contribution of Hydro-metallurgical Recycling to Industrial Waste

Date: 24 Jul 2006 - 24 Jul 2006

Venue: Seminar Room, Valley Block, SIMTech, 71 Nanyang Drive


The increase in waste associated to the depletion of resources has promoted new ways of metal extraction from industrial waste. Since the first oil crisis, the use of hydrometallurgical means for metal extraction has been favoured. Hydrometallurgy tends to consume less energy thus presenting certain economic advantages. The advantages extend beyond economic benefits as hydrometallurgical processes do not emit gases, dust, or vapours. Some of the processes to be presented include: - Recycling of alkaline and zinc carbon batteries - Treatment of lithium ion batteries - Recovery of valuable products from EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) dust - Conversion of Fly ash - Recycling of cathode ray tubes
