A Study on Cementation Process of Lead from Brine Leaching Solution by Aluminum Powder


Hydrometallurgical recycling of lead from zinc plant residue which occurs at leaching plant has been investigated. After determination of optimum parameters in the brine leaching stage, the pregnant solution was proposed on cementation process by Aluminum powder and parameters (time, temperature, initial pH of solution, initial lead content of solution, Al:Pb fraction, stirring velocity) were investigated and optimized.
