To study selective liquid-liquid extraction and the appropriate extractants for iron ions from metallurgical solutions.
The main tasks in the project are as follows :
- to develop a complexing agent or extraction system selective for iron;
- to investigate phase relations, distribution equilibria, and stripping characteristics;
- to apply the data from laboratory experiments to industrial solutions and to develop a continuous processes; thus creating the means for reducing the amount of iron sludges from hydrometallurgical processes to be dumped as chemical waste.
