Electrowinning of iron from sulphate solutions

2008-2-1  In order to throw some light on what has been done in the past concerning electrowinning of iron from aqueous solutions, the authors have collected available information about an extensive project on electrowinning of iron from sulphate solutions, that was carried out some 50 years ago in Norway.

Electrowinning of iron from sulphate solutions

The present paper describes pilot plant operation of the crucial step of this process, which is electrowinning of iron from a sulphuric acid solution, using iron starting sheets and lead anodes surrounded by a diaphragm. High purity iron was produced, with a current yield of 85% and a power consumption of 4.25 kWh/kg iron.

2009-11-1  Copper electrowinning operations have dramatically improved their ability to produce high quality copper at low costs over the past several decades. Even so, some fundamental knowledge is still lacking that could allow operations to run even more efficiently. For example, a rule of thumb exists that estimates a current efficiency loss of 2–3% per gram per liter of iron in the electrolyte.
