Removal of sulfate ions from process water by ion exchange

Removal of sulfate ions from process water by ion exchange

Therefore, reducing sulfate and thiosulfate ion concentration in the process water is required for minimizing gypsum formation and stabilizing pulp chemistry. In this study, strong base ion exchange resins; Amberlite IRA-400 and Dowex 1X2 were used to reduce the amount of sulfate and thiosulfate in the process water.

Biological Treatment of Thiosalts

Biological Treatment of Thiosalts

Grinding and flotation of sulfide ore in alkaline conditions produces water containing thiosalts, mainly thiosulfate, trithionate and tetrathionate. In high enough concentrations these thiosalts prevent the discharge of waste water in the environment because they cause acute lethality to species such as the greater daphnia or the rainbow trout.

Beginning in the mid 1980s a new technology, commonly known as the leach-solvent extraction-electrowinning process or, SX/EW Process, was widely adopted. This new copper technology utilizes smelter acid to produce copper from oxidized ores and mine wastes. Today, worldwide, approximately 20% of all copper produced is produced by this is process.

Enhanced methods for nickel recovery from low grade ores

Low-grade ores, like nickel sulfide, are abundant on Earth. Nickel sulfide deposits contain high levels of magnesium silicate gangue minerals (MgO) and can be difficult to process with conventional flotation and smelting technologies. MgO is hydrophilic, which interferes with flotation of sulfide minerals, and reduces flotation recovery. In ...
