A basic strategy for the recuperation of selenium from copper anode sludge test utilizing antacid broiling process
(This article belongs to Vol - 13, Issue - 01)
The recuperation of selenium from Iranian sar-cheshmeh copper anode sludge has been researched. Copper anode oozes are containing shifting valuable metals, for example, gold, silver, selenium, and tellurium. They are being separated as a result in the generation procedure. Arsenic and antimony that present in anode sludges disintegrated in 0.4 M KOH. At that point, the soluble cooking of anode oozes within the sight of Na2CO3 solubilized selenium. Different parameters, for example, time and temperature of antacid cooking were contemplated. The outcomes demonstrated that the ideal condition for the temperature and time of simmering saw as T=600 C and time= 8 h separately, and that ideal recuperation of selenium was 98%.
