Recovery of minor metals in non-ferrous metal industry
Processing common non-ferrous metals such as copper and zinc is normally associated with generation of byproducts containing so called “minor metals”. These metals, including precious metals: lead, cadmium, antimony, rhenium and others often have significant market value.
AMK Krakow SA provides hydro and pyrometallurgical processes used for metals recovery and refining.
These processes are tailored to fit particular applications and the Customer needs.
Area of application
- non-ferrous metals industry
Advanced hydrometallurgical processes
These processes use variety of techniques such as leaching, filtration, cementation, flotation, etc. They are implemented to:
- improve production efficiency
- remove of pollutants from the production circuit
Our processes are mainly used in the following applications:
- non-ferrous metal industry
- in the processing of waste materials and by-products
Zinc recovery from recycled materials
We provide technology and a full range of equipment for production lines for processing EAF dust, electrolysis residues and other zinc bearing waste materials in order to recover zinc oxide and technologies for zinc refining.
