Effects of SiO2 and CaO on Distributions of Platinum Group Metals Between Cu–CuO0.5 and Pb–PbO-Based Slags at 1523 K
Platinum group metals (PGMs) are recovered using molten Cu or Pb as collector metals during pyrometallurgical recycling processes. The collector metal containing PGMs is oxidized to produce a PGM-enriched alloy and slag, primarily containing Cu or Pb oxide. Additionally, the slag comprises a considerable amount of PGMs. Therefore, it is returned to the upstream processes to be used as a secondary raw material, and some of PGMs remain in the recycling processes. Herein, the distributions of Rh, Pd, and Pt between molten metals (Cu, Pb) and corresponding metal oxide-based (CuO0.5, PbO) slags were investigated at 1523 K. SiO2 or CaO was added to the slag to a maximum concentration of 20 ...
