Project description
Environmental problems in mining industry call for solutions following sustainable development. This research figures out a comprehensive autothermal solution for sulfate and detrimental metals especially in cold conditions. Developed technique is basing on a bio technical phase strongly supported by two chemical units. Target is to process sulfate from waste to a valuable substance, utilized in metal precipitation. In addition it may be converted to a source material for sulfuric acid production.
