Copper extraction refers to the methods used to obtaining copper from its ores.The conversion of copper consists of a series of physical and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors.
Chapter 82 Metal Processing and Metal Working Industry
The metal smelting and refining industry processes metal ores and scrap metal to obtain pure metals. The metal working industries process metals in order to manufacture machine components, machinery, instruments and tools which are needed by other industries
Removal of heavy metal ions from wastewaters A review
Hydroxide precipitation process using Ca(OH) 2 and NaOH in removing Cu(II) and Cr(VI) ions from wastewater was evaluated by Mirbagheri and Hosseini (2005).The Cr(VI) was converted to Cr(III) using ferrous sulfate. Maximum precipitation of Cr(III) occurred at pH 8.7 with the addition of Ca(OH) 2 and the concentration of chromate was reduced from 30 mg/L to 0.01 mg/L.
Heavy metals are generally defined as metals with relatively high densities, atomic weights, or atomic numbers.The criteria used, and whether metalloids are included, vary depending on the author and context. In metallurgy, for example, a heavy metal may be defined on the basis of density, whereas in physics the distinguishing criterion might be atomic number, while a chemist would likely be
Gold, recognizable by its yellowish cast, is one of the oldest metals used by humans. As far back as the Neolithic period, humans have collected gold from stream beds, and the actual mining of gold can be traced as far back as 3500 B.C. , when early Egyptians (the Sumerian culture of Mesopotamia) used mined gold to craft elaborate jewelry, religious artifacts, and utensils such as goblets.
