EMET 401 - Hydrometallurgy & Aqueous Processing

3 credits (Hrs: 3 Lec.)
Chemistry and operating principles related to hydrometallurgical and electrometallurgical unit operations are illustrated and discussed for industrial processes. Acid rock drainage formation and treatment methods are examined. Physical and chemical principles as well as design criteria are discussed and examined from an operational approach throughout. Hydrometallurgical processes commonly used for concentrating include traditional leaching (dump, heap, vat and agitation), bacterial leaching, solvent extraction, ion exchange, and reduction (cementation, electrowinning and gaseous reduction). Electrometallurgical processes commonly used for purifying include electrothermic, electrolytic, electrowinning and electrorefining methods.

Prerequisite(s): EMAT 307 or consent of instructor. Course generally offered 1st semester.
