Selective Recovery Of Copper From Solutions After Bioleaching Electronic Waste

Open access

Abstract

Research on selective extraction of copper from solution after bioleaching grounded printed circuit boards (PCBs) using LIX 860N-IC were conducted. The effect of LIX 860N-IC concentration, phase ratio and influence of initial pH value of aqueous phase on the extraction of copper and iron was examined. It was found that the extraction rate of copper increases with the LIX 860N-IC concentration. Best results of Cu extraction (98 %) were achieved with extractant concentration of 5 % and pH 1.9. Higher pH value of aqueous phase (pH=2.4) is conducive to the simultaneous effect of Fe co-extraction.
