The objective of this project was to remove/recover low level copper from barren process solutions, enabling the copper depleted solution to then be treated for ammonia recovery. Project activities included:
- Literature review of available technologies and process applications
- Pilot Scale study to demonstrate feasibility of Ion Exchange treatment
- Six month demonstration plant to prove robustness of process
- Commercial installation to fixed budget, installation undertaken as joint project with Adchem personnel.
The results of this work have delivered a significant cost benefit through copper recovery and an improved environmental outcome in site effluent quality. The installed plant was designed and has continued to operate un-manned with availability in excess of 99% since installation in 2004.
