    Porphyry copper deposits are important sources of copper and typically processed by flotation to produce copper concentrates. As mining areas become deeper, the amounts of impurities, such as sphalerite, can be increased in copper ores, so the appropriate depression of sphalerite floatability should be achieved to obtain saleable copper concentrates. In this study, the flotation behaviors of chalcopyrite and sphalerite in model samples mimicking copper ores with high Cu/Zn ratios (i.e., the ratio of chalcopyrite/sphalerite = 13:1) were investigated with zinc sulfate as a depressant for sphalerite. In addition, the effect of pyrite—a major gangue mineral in copper ores—on the depression of sphalerite floatability with zinc sulfate was examined. When sphalerite and chalcopyrite coexisted, the floatability of the former was effectively depressed by zinc sulfate (Zn recovery: <12%), whereas the presence of pyrite promoted the release of Cu2+ due to the galvanic interaction with chalcopyrite, which resulted in the elimination of the effectiveness of zinc sulfate in depressing sphalerite floatability (Zn recovery: >90%). Despite the presence of much higher amounts of chalcopyrite and pyrite than sphalerite, the application of nitrogen (N2) gas limiting the galvanic interaction between pyrite and chalcopyrite by reducing the dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration in the system effectively depressed the floatability of sphalerite (Zn recovery: <30%).

    The presence of anglesite (PbSO4) in complex sulfide ores negatively affects the separation of Cu-Pb sulfides and sphalerite (ZnS) due to lead activation, and PbSO4 rejected to tailings dams contaminates the surrounding environment with lead. To address these problems, this study investigated the application of ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) pretreatment extracting PbSO4 to ZnS flotation and the recovery of the extracted Pb2+ as zero-valent Pb by cementation using zero-valent iron (ZVI). The application of EDTA pretreatment could extract ~99.8% of PbSO4, thus depressing ZnS floatability from 82% to 30%. In addition, cementation using ZVI could recover ~99.7% of Pb2+ from the leachate of EDTA pretreatment.

    Effects of the water content of ground surface on windborne lead (Pb) dispersion from the zinc (Zn) leach residue site at the Kabwe mine, Zambia, were simulated. The Pb-bearing Zn plant leach residue site was selected as the source of the dispersion, and water conditions of the surface of the source were evaluated by the modified normalized difference water index (MNDWI) under the actual weather conditions in the year 2019. The MNDWI was calculated based on Sentinel-2 datasets, which were acquired in the year 2019. The index was used for monitoring the surface condition of the source necessary for simulating Pb dispersion, because the higher surface water content reduces the intensity of windborne source. The results showed that the wind speeds and directions had huge impacts on Pb dispersion when the MNDWI had negative values, and that the dispersion was inhibited when the MNDWI had positive values. These indicate that the water content of the surface is sensitive to dispersion, and that MNDWI is an effective parameter that expresses the source strength.

    Zinc plant leach residues (ZPLRs), particularly those produced using old technologies, have both economic importance as secondary raw materials and have environmental impacts because they contain hazardous heavy metals that pose risks to human health and the environment. Therefore, the extraction and recovery of these metals from ZPLRs has both economic and environmental benefits. In this study, we investigated the removal of lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) from ZPLRs by alkaline (NaOH) leaching and the concurrent cementation of dissolved Pb and Zn using aluminum (Al) metal powder. The effects of the leaching time, NaOH concentration, solid-to-liquid ratio (S/L), and dosage of Al metal powder on the extraction of Pb and Zn were investigated. Pb and Zn removal efficiencies increased with increasing NaOH concentrations and decreasing S/Ls. The Pb and Zn removal efficiencies were 62.2% and 27.1%, respectively, when 2.5 g/50 mL (S/L) of ZPLRs were leached in a 3 M NaOH solution for 30 min. The extraction of Pb and Zn could be attributed to the partitioning of these metals in relatively more mobile phases—water-soluble, exchangeable, and carbonate phases— in ZPLRs. Around 100% of dissolved Pb and less than 2% of dissolved Zn were cemented in leaching pulp when Al metal powder was added. Minerals in the solid residues, particularly iron oxides minerals, were found to suppress the cementation of extracted Zn in leaching pulp, and when they were removed by filtration, Zn was recovered by Al metal powder via cementation.

    The recovery of fine mineral particles in flotation is limited owing to the low collision probability between the particles and air bubbles. The carrier flotation method can enhance fine particle recovery by attaching fines to coarse carrier particles. In this study, an attempt was made to improve the recovery of chalcopyrite fines using coarse pyrite particles as a carrier. Flotation experiments for finely ground chalcopyrite (D50 ∼ 3 µm) were conducted with and without coarse pyrite (–125+106 µm) using potassium amyl xanthate as a collector. The results showed that untreated pyrite did not act as an effective carrier and that the amount of fine chalcopyrite attached to pyrite was not significant; furthermore, Cu recovery into froth was around 65% both with and without pyrite. When pyrite was pre-treated with a CuSO4 solution, its carrier ability improved owing to a significant amount of fine chalcopyrite becoming attached to the Cu2+-activated pyrite particles and being recovered with pyrite into the froth (Cu recovery, >90%). Overall, the treatment of pyrite with CuSO4 improved its hydrophobicity, which improved its hydrophobic interactions with fine chalcopyrite particles. Thus, the Cu2+-treatment of pyrite promotes the attachment of fine chalcopyrite particles for their increased recovery from fines.

    Toxics 9 10 2021年10月04日 
    Zambia's Kabwe mine wastes (KMWs) are responsible for contaminating the surrounding soil and dust in the Kabwe district. Unfortunately, these wastes arise from the historical mining activities of lead (Pb) and Zinc (Zn), which lacked adequate waste management strategies. As a result, potentially toxic elements (PTEs) (Pb and Zn) spread across the Kabwe district. To assess the soil pollution derived from previous mining activities, we studied topsoil samples (n = 8) from the school playground soils (SPs). In this study, the degree of contamination, geochemical partitioning, and leachability, coupled with the release and retention of Pb and Zn, were studied. The SPs were classified as extremely enriched (EF > 40) and contaminated with Pb (Igeo > 5). On average, Pb (up to 89%) and Zn (up to 69%) were bound with exchangeable, weak acid-soluble, reducible and oxidizable phases, which are considered as 'geochemically mobile' phases in the environment. The leachates from the soils (n = 5) exceeded the Zambian standard (ZS: 190:2010) for Pb in potable drinking water (Pb < 0.01 mg/L). Furthermore, the spatial distribution of Pb and Zn showed a significant reduction in contents of Pb and Zn with the distance from the mine area.

    Dispersion of lead (Pb) in mine wastes was simulated for reproducing Pb contamination of soil in Kabwe District, Zambia. Local weather data of year 2019 were monitored in situ and used for the simulations. The plume model, weak puff model, and no puff model were adopted for calculation of Pb dispersion under different wind conditions. The results showed that Pb dispersion from the Kabwe mine was directly affected by wind directions and speeds in the dry season, although it was not appreciably affected in the rainy season. This may be because the source strength is lower in the rainy season due to higher water content of the surface. This indicates that Pb dispersion patterns depend on the season. In addition, the distribution of the amount of deposited Pb-bearing soils around the mine corresponded to the distribution of Pb contents in soils. These results suggest that Pb contamination in soils primarily results from dispersion of fine mine wastes.

    The purpose of this study is to propose the flotation procedure of seafloor massive sulfide (SMS) ores to separate chalcopyrite and galena as froth and sphalerite, pyrite, and other gangue minerals as tailings, which is currently facing difficulties due to the presence of water-soluble compounds. The obtained SMS ore sample contains CuFeS2, ZnS, FeS2, SiO2, and BaSO4 in addition to PbS and PbSO4 as Pb minerals. Soluble compounds releasing Pb, Zn2+, Pb2+, and Fe2+/3+ are also contained. When anglesite co-exists, lead activation of sphalerite occurred, and thus sphalerite was recovered together with chalcopyrite as froth. To remove soluble compounds (e.g., anglesite) that have detrimental effects on the separation efficiency of chalcopyrite and sphalerite, surface cleaning pretreatment using ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) was applied before flotation. Although most of anglesite were removed and the recovery of chalcopyrite was improved from 19% to 81% at 20 g/t potassium amyl xanthate (KAX) after EDTA washing, the floatability of sphalerite was not suppressed. When zinc sulfate was used as a depressant for sphalerite after EDTA washing, the separation efficiency of chalcopyrite and sphalerite was improved due to deactivation of lead-activated sphalerite by zinc sulfate. The proposed flotation procedure of SMS ores—a combination of surface cleaning with EDTA to remove anglesite and the depression of lead-activated sphalerite by using zinc sulfate—could achieve the highest separation efficiency of chalcopyrite and sphalerite; that is, at 200 g/t KAX, the recoveries of chalcopyrite and sphalerite were 86% and 17%, respectively.

    AbstractThe present study investigated biosorption of Pb (II) and Zn (II) using a heavy metal tolerant bacterium Oceanobacillus profundus KBZ 3-2 isolated from a contaminated site. The effects of process parameters such as effect on bacterial growth, pH and initial lead ion concentration were studied. The results showed that the maximum removal percentage for Pb (II) was 97% at an initial concentration of 50 mg/L whereas maximum removal percentage for Zn (II) was at 54% at an initial concentration of 2 mg/L obtained at pH 6 and 30 °C. The isolated bacteria were found to sequester both Pb (II) and Zn (II) in the extracellular polymeric substance (EPS). The EPS facilitates ion exchange and metal chelation-complexation by virtue of the existence of ionizable functional groups such as carboxyl, sulfate, and phosphate present in the protein and polysaccharides. Therefore, the use of indigenous bacteria in the remediation of contaminated water is an eco-friendly way of solving anthropogenic contamination.

    Acid mine drainage (AMD) formation and toxic arsenic (As) pollution are serious environmental problems encountered worldwide. In this study, we investigated the crucial roles played by common secondary mineral phases formed during the natural weathering of pyrite-bearing wastes soluble salts (melanterite, FeSO4 center dot 7H(2)0) and metal oxides (hematite, Fe2O3)-on AMD formation and As mobility under acidic conditions (pH 1.5-4) prevalent in historic tailings storage facilities, pyrite-bearing rock dumps and AMD-contaminated soils and sediments. Our results using a pyrite-rich natural geological material containing arsenopyrite (FeAsS) showed that melanterite and hematite both directly-by supplying H+ and/or oxidants (Fe3+)-and indirectly-via changes in the nature of oxidation layer formed on pyrite-influenced pyrite oxidation dynamics. Based on SEM-EDS, DRIFT spectroscopy and XPS results, the oxidation layer on pyrite was mainly composed of ferric arsenate and K-Jarosite when melanterite was abundant with/without hematite but changed to Fe-oxyhydroxide/oxide and scorodite when melanterite was low and hematite was present This study also observed the formation of a mechanically 'strong' coaling on pyrite that suppressed the mineral's oxidation. Finally, As mobility under acidic conditions was limited by its precipitation as ferric arsenate, scorodite, or a Fe/Al arsenate phase, including its strong adsorption to Fe-oxyhydroxides/oxides.

    Massive amount of highly contaminated mining residual materials (MRM) has been left unattended and has leached heavy metals, particularly lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) to the surrounding environments. Thus, the performance of three immobilizers, raw dolomite (RD), calcined dolomite (CD), and magnesium oxide (MO), was evaluated using batch experiments to determine their ability to immobilize Pb and Zn, leached from MRM. The addition of immobilizers increased the leachate pH and decreased the amounts of dissolved Pb and Zn to different extents. The performance of immobilizers to immobilize Pb and Zn followed the following trend: MO > CD > RD. pH played an important role in immobilizing Pb and Zn. Dolomite in RD could slightly raise the pH of the MRM leachate. Therefore, the addition of RD immobilized Pb and Zn via adsorption and co-precipitation, and up to 10% of RD addition did not reduce the concentrations of Pb and Zn to be lower than the effluent standards in Zambia. In contrast, the presence of magnesia in CD and MO significantly contributed to the rise of leachate pH to the value where it was sufficient to precipitate hydroxides of Pb and Zn and decrease their leaching concentrations below the regulated values. Even though MO outperformed CD, by considering the local availability of RD to produce CD, CD could be a potential immobilizer to be implemented in Zambia.

    Flotation is the conventional method for processing porphyry copper deposits, one of the most economically important sources of copper (Cu) worldwide. The rapidly decreasing grade of this type of Cu ore in recent years, however, presents serious problems with fine particle recovery using conventional flotation circuits. This low recovery could be attributed to the low collision efficiency of fine particles and air bubbles during flotation. To improve collision efficiency and flotation recovery, agglomeration of finely ground chalcopyrite (CuFeS2) (D50 = 3.5 μm) using emulsified oil stabilized by emulsifiers was elucidated in this study. Specifically, the effects of various types of anionic (sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), potassium amyl xanthate (KAX)), cationic (dodecyl amine acetate (DAA)), and non-ionic (polysorbate 20 (Tween 20)) emulsifiers on emulsified oil stability and agglomeration–flotation efficiency were investigated. When emulsifiers were added, the average size of agglomerates increased, resulting in higher Cu recovery during flotation. This dramatic improvement in flotation efficiency could be attributed to the smaller oil droplet size in emulsified oil and their higher stability in the presence of emulsifiers. The utilization of emulsifiers during agglomeration–flotation not only lowered the required agitation strength for agglomeration but also shortened the agglomeration time, both of which made the process easier to incorporate in existing flotation circuits.

    In flotation, the size of mineral particles is one of the most important parameters: when the size becomes fine, collision efficiency of the particles and air bubbles becomes low, causing low flotation recovery. To improve the collision efficiency and flotation kinetics, agglomeration using the emulsified oil of finely ground chalcopyrite (D50 = 3.5 μm) was carried out before flotation. In this study, the effects of agitation strength during agglomeration, kerosene dosage and potassium amyl xanthate (KAX) dosage on the flotation were investigated. Agglomeration using emulsified oil improved Cu recovery because the median diameter of agglomerate increased. With increasing agitation strength, KAX and kerosene dosages, Cu recovery was further increased. Agglomeration-flotation of a mixture containing chalcopyrite and quartz with 1:1 ratio (w/w, weight by weight) showed that Si recovery in froth was low and did not change with varying conditions (agitation strength, KAX and kerosene dosages); however, Cu recovery was significantly improved with increasing agitation strength, KAX and kerosene dosages, and thus the separation efficiency was improved.

    Zinc plant leach residues (ZPLRs) contain significant amounts of metal compounds of lead (Pb), zinc (Zn), iron (Fe), etc., hence, they are considered as a secondary source of metals. On the other hand, ZPLRs are regarded as hazardous materials because they contain heavy metals that pollute the environment. Resources and environmental concerns of ZPLRs were addressed in this study by removing/recovering Pb and Zn using a concurrent dissolution and cementation technique. To cement the dissolved Pb and Zn in leaching pulp, zero-valent aluminum (ZVAl) was added during ZPLRs leaching in the hydrochloric (HCl)–sodium chloride (NaCl) solution. The resulting cemented metals were agglomerated and separated by sieving. Lead removal increased with increasing both NaCl and HCl concentrations. However, when ZVAl was added, significant Pb removal was achieved at a low concentration. Zinc was not cemented out of the pulp using ZVAl and its recovery from ZPLRs was dependent on the HCl concentration only. By applying a concurrent dissolution and cementation technique, both Pb and Zn were removed using a low concentration of NaCl, and most importantly Pb—the most toxic metal in ZPLRs—was captured and separated before the solid-liquid separation, hence, eliminating the need for extensive washing of the generated residues to remove the inherent residual solution.

    Complex sulfide ores contain sphalerite and galena, and sometimes anglesite is also contained. In the flotation, sphalerite is activated by Pb2+ dissolved from anglesite; that is, Pb2+ makes PbS-like layer on sphalerite, resulting in the increase in the floatability of sphalerite. In this study, the floatability of lead-activated sphalerite in the presence of pyrite was investigated. Flotation results of lead-activated sphalerite showed that it was depressed when pyrite co-existed. To elucidate the mechanism of how pyrite depressed the floatability of lead-activated sphalerite, the effects of electrical connection between pyrite and lead-activated sphalerite were discussed. The results of agitating tests of PbS and pyrite suggested that the PbS dissolved due to the galvanic interaction between PbS and pyrite, thereby reducing the amounts of xanthate adsorbed on PbS.

    Environmental impacts resulting from historic lead and zinc mining in Kabwe, Zambia affect human health due to the dust generated from the mine waste that contains lead, a known hazardous pollutant. We employed microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICP), an alternative capping method, to prevent dust generation and reduce the mobility of contaminants. Pb-resistant Oceanobacillus profundus KBZ 1-3 and O. profundus KBZ 2-5 isolated from Kabwe were used to biocement the sand that would act as a cover to prevent dust and water infiltration. Sand biocemented by KBZ 1-3 and KBZ 2-5 had maximum unconfined compressive strength values of 3.2 MPa and 5.5 MPa, respectively. Additionally, biocemented sand exhibited reduced water permeability values of 9.6 × 10-8 m/s and 8.9 × 10-8 m/s for O. profundus KBZ 1-3 and KBZ 2-5, respectively, which could potentially limit the entrance of water and oxygen into the dump, hence reducing the leaching of heavy metals. We propose that these isolates represent an option for bioremediating contaminated waste by preventing both metallic dust from becoming airborne and rainwater from infiltrating into the waste. O. profundus KBZ 1-3 and O. profundus KBZ 2-5 isolated form Kabwe represent a novel species that has, for the first time, been applied in a bioremediation study.

    Biocementation of hazardous waste is used in reducing the mobility of contaminants, but studies on evaluating its efficacy have not been well documented. Therefore, to evaluate the efficacy of this method, physicochemical factors affecting stabilized hazardous products of in situ microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICP) were determined. The strength and leach resistance were investigated using the bacterium Pararhodobacter sp. Pb-contaminated kiln slag (KS) and leach plant residue (LPR) collected from Kabwe, Zambia, were investigated. Biocemented KS and KS/LPR had leachate Pb concentrations below the detection limit of < 0.001 mg/L, resisted slaking, and had maximum unconfined compressive strengths of 8 MPa for KS and 4 MPa for KS/LPR. Furthermore, biocemented KS and KS/LPR exhibited lower water absorption coefficient values, which could potentially reduce the water transportation of Pb2+. The results of this study show that MICP can reduce Pb2+ mobility in mine wastes. The improved physicochemical properties of the biocemented materials, therefore, indicates that this technique is an effective tool in stabilizing hazardous mine wastes and, consequently, preventing water and soil contamination.

    This paper describes the recovery of gold (Au) from shredder light fraction (SLF) of a recycling plant by flotation and leaching. SLF is typically sent to landfills as waste, but it still contains substantial amounts of Au, and other metals like Cu and Fe. The SLF sample used in this study contains 0.003% of Au, 12% of Cu, and 10% of Fe. Flotation results showed that over 99% of Au and 50% of combustibles were recovered in froth while most of the base metals were recovered in tailing. SEM-EDX of froth products indicates that Au floated via two mechanisms: (1) flotation of Au-plated plastic particles, and (2) agglomeration of fine Au particles together with plastic particles due to kerosene-induced hydrophobic-hydrophobic interactions followed by the flotation of these agglomerated particles. Combustibles in froth/tailing were analyzed by ATR-FTIR, and the results showed that plastics in the froth were mostly sulfonated polystyrene (PS) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) while those in tailing were polyurethane (PU) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Contact angle measurements of plastic particles suggest that PS and ABS are more hydrophobic than PU and PET. Most of the base metals in the tailing had either bent or twisted shapes because they were mostly made up of wires. In flotation, these large and heavy particles are unaffected by bubbles and simply sink. Leaching results using ammonium thiosulfate solutions showed that Au extraction increased from 33 to 51% after flotation.

    Predicting the fates of arsenic (As) and selenium (Se) in natural geologic media like rocks and soils necessitates the understanding of how their various oxyanionic species behave and migrate under dynamic conditions. In this study, geochemical factors and processes crucial in the leaching and transport of arsenite (As-III), arsenate (As-V), selenite (Se-IV) and selenate (Se-VI) in tunnel-excavated rocks of marine origin were investigated using microscopic/extraction techniques, column experiments, dissolution-precipitation kinetics and one-dimensional reactive transport modeling. The results showed that evaporite salts were important because aside from containing As and Se, they played crucial roles in the evolution of pH and concentrations of coexisting ions, both of which had strong effects on adsorption-desorption reactions of As and Se species with iron oxyhydroxide minerals/phases. The observed leaching trends of As-V, As-III, Se-IV and Se-VI were satisfactorily simulated by one-dimensional reactive transport models, which predict that preferential adsorptions of As-V and Se-IV were magnified by geochemical changes in the columns due to water flow. Moreover, our results showed that migrations of As-III, Se-IV and Se-VI could be predicted adequately by 1D solute transport with simple activity-K '(d) approach, but surface complexation was more reliable to simulate adsorption-desorption behavior of As-V.

    Rocks excavated in tunnel construction projects for roads and railways throughout Japan often leached out hazardous trace elements like arsenic (As) and selenium (Se) upon their exposure to the environment. In nature, the various oxyanionic species of As and Se not only coexist but also exhibit contrasting adsorption-desorption behaviors, so speciation is a crucial factor in their migration through natural geologic media. In this study, the leaching and transport of arsenite (As-III), arsenate (As-V), selenite (Sew) and selenate (Se-VI) in four tunnel-excavated rocks from the Cretaceous-Paleocene Yezo forearc basin were investigated using laboratory column experiments supplemented by batch leaching experiments. The single- and consecutive-batch leaching results revealed that As-III, As-V, Se-IV and Se-VI were released simultaneously, which could be attributed to the rapid dissolution of trace evaporite salts found in the rocks. Arsenic in the leachates was also predominated by As-V while Se-IV and Se-VI concentrations were nearly equal, which are both consistent with predictions of equilibrium Eh-pH diagrams. Under intermittent and unsaturated flow, however, periods when As-III and Se-VI predominated in the effluents were observed. Spatial distributions of As and Se species with depth at the end of the column experiments suggest that migrations of As-III, As-V and Se-IV were delayed, the extent of which depended on the rock. These results indicate that migration and speciation of As and Se in the rocks are controlled by preferential adsorption-desorption reactions, the effects of which were most probably magnified by changes in the pH and concentrations of coexisting ions due to intermittent and unsaturated flow.

    The oxidative dissolution of pyrite is an important process in the redox recycling of iron (Fe) and is well-known for its role in the formation of acid mine drainage (AMD), which is considered as the most serious and widespread problem after the closure of mines and mineral processing operations. Because thiS process requires the movement of electrons, common metal oxides in nature that have either semiconducting (e.g., hematite) or insulating (e.g., alumina) properties may have strong effects on it. In this study, changes in the electrochemical behavior of pyrite in the presence of hematite and alumina were investigated. Results showed that the formation of surface bound species directly influenced the anodic and cathodic half-cell reactions as well as the transfer of electrons between these sites. Pyrite pretreated in the air became anodically more reactive than that pretreated in oxygenated water, but the type of oxidizing media had little effect on the cathodic half-cell reaction. The presence of hematite and alumina during pretreatment also had strong effects on the electrochemical properties of pyrite. Chronoamperometry measurements suggest that hematite and alumina enhanced the anodic half-cell reaction but suppressed the cathodic half-cell reaction of pyrite oxidation. Increased anodic half-cell reaction in the presence of hematite could be attributed to electron "bridging" and catalytic effects of this mineral. In contrast, the effects of alumina on the anodic half-cell reaction were indirect and could be explained by the formation of Fe3+-oxyhydroxide surface species during pretreatment. Suppression of the cathodic half-cell reaction by both minerals was attributed to their "protective" effect on cathodic sites. Our results also point to the cathodic half cell reaction as the rate determining-step of the overall oxidative dissolution process.

    Pyrite is one of the most common and geochemically important sulfide minerals in nature because of its role in the redox recycling of iron (Fe). It is also the primary cause of acid mine drainage (AMD) that is considered as a serious and widespread problem facing the mining and mineral processing industries. In the environment, pyrite oxidation occurs in the presence of ubiquitous metal oxides, but the roles that they play in this process remain largely unknown. This study evaluates the effects of hematite (alpha-Fe2O3) and alumina (alpha-Al2O3) on pyrite oxidation by batch-reactor type experiments, surface-sensitive characterization of the oxidation layer and thermodynamic/kinetic modeling calculations. In the presence of hematite, dissolved sulfur (S) concentration dramatically decreased independent of the pH, and the formation of intermediate sulfoxy anionic species on the surface of pyrite was retarded. These results indicate that hematite minimized the overall extent of pyrite oxidation, but the kinetic model could not explain how this suppression occurred. In contrast, pyrite oxidation was enhanced in the alumina suspension as suggested by the higher dissolved S concentration and stronger infrared (IR) absorption bands of surface-bound oxidation products. Based On the kinetic model, alumina enhanced the oxidative dissolution of pyrite because of its strong acid buffering capacity, which increased the suspension pH. The higher pH values increased the oxidation of Fe2+ to Fe3+ by dissolved O-2 (DO) that enhanced the overall oxidative dissolution kinetics of pyrite. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    The recovery of platinum group metals (PGMs) from chloride solution using magnetite was investigated. The adsorption of platinum, palladium, and rhodium in chloride medium onto synthetic magnetite powders were studied at different pH conditions, contact time, sodium chloride concentrations, and initial Pt, Rh, and Pd concentrations. Platinum and palladium uptake by magnetite was at a maximum at pH 6-7, and pH 3-4 for rhodium after 24 h with 0.1 mol/dm(3) sodium chloride at an initial PGM concentration of 0.05 mol/m(3). A sorption mechanism for PGMs was discussed based on the results.

    An electrochemical method (potential sweep method) was utilized to investigate the nature of the absorbed gold on magnetite and to determine the gold sorption mechanism. A magnetite electrode was prepared in the laboratory, made in contact with a gold chloride solution at different conditions, and was subjected to cyclic voltammetry. The cyclic voltammogram of the magnetite electrode pretreated in a gold chloride solution recorded an anodic current peak at around 1.0V (vs. Ag/AgCl), which corresponds to the current generated for the anodic dissolution of metallic gold in a chloride medium. The results of the electrochemical experiments suggest that gold chloride complexes are reduced to metallic gold on the surface of magnetite. A four-stage gold uptake mechanism was proposed: (i) the transport of [GRAPHICS] from the bulk solution to the magnetite surface, (ii) adsorption of [GRAPHICS] ions on magnetite surface by electrostatic attraction, (iii) electrochemical reduction of [GRAPHICS] to metallic Au, and (iv) the transport of soluble species to the solution phase. The electrochemical investigation also revealed that Fe3+ ions released from magnetite into the solution, suppressed the gold uptake at the acidic pH region.

    Sedimentary rocks of marine origin excavated from tunnel construction projects usually contain background levels of hazardous trace elements, but when exposed to the environment, they generate leachates with concentrations of arsenic (As), selenium (Se) and boron (B) exceeding the WHO guideline for drinking water. In this study, the leaching of As, Se and B was evaluated under in situ conditions at various flow patterns, particle size distributions and column thicknesses. The results showed that these trace elements were leached out of the rock via short and long term mechanisms. In the short term, all three elements were rapidly and simultaneously released due to the dissolution of soluble evaporite salts formed from entrapped sea water of the Cretaceous. After their rapid release, however, these trace elements behaved differently as a result of their contrasting adsorption affinities onto minerals like clays and Feoxyhydroxides, which were further influenced by the pH, presence of coexisting ions and speciation of the trace elements. Selenium was quickly and easily transported out of the columns because it was mostly present as the very mobile selenate ion (Se[VI]). In comparison, the migration of As and B was hindered by adsorption reactions onto mineral phases of the rock Boron was initially the least mobile among the three because of its preferential adsorption onto clay minerals that was further enhanced by the slightly alkaline pH and high concentrations of Ca2+ and Na+. However, it was gradually re-mobilized in the latter part of the experiments because it was only weakly adsorbed via outer sphere complexation reactions. In the long term, the rock continued to release substantial amounts of As, Se and B via pyrite oxidation and adsorption/desorption reactions, which were regulated by the temperature and rainfall intensity/frequency on site.

    Arsenic (As), a very poisonous inorganic pollutant is a major toxicant in tailings of porphyry copper deposits. Retention of As by Schwertmannite (a ferric-oxyhydroxysulfate mineral) has attracted much attention in recent years due to its strong binding affinity to toxic As species. The stability of As(V)-sorbed schwertmannite under copper mine waste conditions is not fully understood. The present study investigates the effect of Cu2+, Fe2+, pH, and ageing time on the stability of As(V)-sorbed schwertmannite (Sch-As). The results indicate that Cu2+ has no significant effect on the stability of Sch-As and that the As(V) incorporated in schwertmannite can retard or significantly inhibit Fe2+-catalyzed transformation of schwertmannite to goethite under acidic conditions (pH 3-4). The Sch-As aged at different pHs from 3 to 11 at 25 degrees C exhibits no mineralogical phase changes even after ageing for 120-days; however the concentration of As released from the solid phase appears to be strongly pH-dependent even after ageing for only 24 h. The release of As was negligible at pHs from 2 to 7, and there was considerableTelease of As at extremely acidic and alkaline conditions. This indicates that the release of As from Sch-As was controlled by environmental factors such as pH, Cu2+, and Fe2+ rather than time. (C)) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Schwertmannite, a ferric oxyhydroxy sulfate mineral, has gained attention in recent years due to its high sorption capacity for toxic arsenic species. In porphyry copper mines, production of schwertmannite from heap leaching solutions may be possible because the solutions contain high concentrations of ferric and sulfate ions, which are components of schwertmannite. The present study investigates the effect of Cu2+ and Fe2+, coexisting ions in heap leaching solutions, on the synthesis of schwertmannite; as well as the efficiency of As(V) removal from acidic solutions by the synthesized products. Synthesis was carried out by neutralization of 50 mM Fe-2(SO4)(3) solutions at 65 degrees C (final pH: 3-4), and the synthesized products were characterized by XRD. The results indicated that Cu2+ does not affect the synthesis of schwertmannite, but that Fe2+ has a significant influence on the synthesis; transformation of intermediate schwertmannite to goethite occurred in the presence of Fe2+. Schwertmannite was produced in the presence of both Cu2+ and Fe2+, suggesting that Cu2+ inhibits the transformation of schwertmannite to goethite in the presence of Fe2+. To confirm this, the transformation of schwertmannite to goethite was investigated in solutions containing Fe2+ and Cu2+ at pH 3-4 and 65 degrees C. It was shown that a complete transformation to goethite occurred in 1 h in the presence of 100 mM Fe2+. However, 100 mM Cu2+ inhibited the transformation of schwertmannite to goethite in the presence of Fe2+. Batch sorption experiments were conducted to evaluate the As(V) sorption capacity of the synthesized products. The results showed that As(V) in acidic solutions (pH 3-4) can be removed effectively by synthesized schwertmannite with the maximum As(V) sorption capacity of 94-133 mg g(-1). A lower As(V) sorption capacity was observed in products containing goethite synthesized in the presence of Fe2+; here, the maximum As(V) sorption capacity was 58 mg g(-1). (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.

    Electrical disintegration is an effective liberation technique in mineral processing where the liberation ratio depends on the mineralogical properties of the mineral grains. However elucidation of the liberation behavior is difficult since the fragments after the electrical disintegration are fine and complex. This study applies electrical disintegration to cement paste samples with various dispersed mineral particles (calcite, quartz, albite, and pyrite) and the disintegrated products are observed with a micro-focus X-ray CT scanner. Current channels and crack extension behavior from the channels are identified by cross sectional CT and three dimensional reconstructed images. A classification of the crack patterns was carried out and compared with the results of liberation ratio measurements of the products. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    The jig is efficient in separating relatively low density particles such as plastics; however conventional discharge devices attached to jigs cause mechanical disruption of the stratified layers at the outlet from the separation chamber, and decrease the grade of the recovered bottom layer product. A new device was developed for efficiently separating high grade bottom layer product, better than 99%, where particles of the bottom and top layers are recovered as overflow products by agitation with water pulsation.

    Influence of particle shape on hydrocyclone classification was investigated. Classification tests using hydrocyclone and cyclosizer showed that coarse fractions of plate-like particles such as PTFE and glass flake used here were not necessarily recovered as underflow product, especially at relatively high inlet velocity. Settling velocity of the glass flake particles in centrifugal field was estimated using a centrifugal particle size analyzer, and it was revealed that differences in settling velocity between coarse and fine glass flake particles became smaller with increases in angular velocity. Moreover, settling test of glass plate in water or glycerin solution was conducted to know relationship between particle Reynolds number (Re) and settling velocity of the plate. At smaller Re condition, the glass plate settled straight and stably, and larger plate settled faster than smaller plate. However, oscillating motion of the plate occurred in the region of high Re, and settling velocities of the large plate became smaller than that of the small plate in such conditions. Drag coefficient (C) calculated based on the settling velocity of the glass plate is similar to that of glass spheres below Re of about 50, above which it became larger than that of glass sphere. Approximation formula of correlaton between Re and C suggests that the influence of the Re on C can be neglected in the region of high Re, and C increases with increases in the ratio of the particle diameter to thickness (D/T). The decrease of the difference in settling velocity recognized in the centrifugal settling test and the effect of the particle shape (D/T) on C at high Re region are considered to be able to affect the hydrocyclone classification. The misplacement of coarse plate-like particles in the hydrocyclone and cyclosizer tests could be ascribed to the particle shape effects. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Acid mine drainage (AMD) is formed from the natural oxidation of sulfide minerals such as pyrite and FeS2. Prevention of AMD is very important and several techniques are currently being investigated for the treatment and abatement of AMD. This paper proposes carrier-microencapsulation (CME) using Si-catechol complex -Si(cat)(3)(2-) -for preventing pyrite oxidation. In CME, the water soluble organic carrier, catechol, and metal ion, Si, make a complex, e.g., tris-catecholato complex of Si4+, which oxidatively decomposes on pyrite surface and forms a stable oxide or hydroxide, e.g., Si(OH)(4) or SiO2 layer on the pyrite surface as a protective coating against pyrite oxidation. To demonstrate the effect of CME using Si(cat)(3)(2-) on pyrite oxidation, shaking flask leaching experiments of pyrite without and with CME treatment were performed. Significant halt in pH drop was observed after the CME treatment of pyrite. The CME coating was found very effective even at low Si(cat)(3)(2-) concentration of 1 and 5 mol m(-3). The amount of Fe and S leached were lower from the pyrite with CME treatment than without CME treatment, indicating that CME using Si and catechol is effective in suppressing pyrite oxidation. The effect of pH and presence of microorganism were also evaluated. The CME coating was found very effective even in acidic pH range. The CME treatment suppressed pyrite oxidation even in the presence of iron oxidizing microorganism. Presence of Si and O on the residue pyrite surface in energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analysis supported the sustainability of CME coating at acidic pH.

    Automobile shredded residue is a potential solid fuel when its metal and chloride-containing components have been removed. The authors have investigated physical separation of automobile shredded residue to isolate components that may be used as solid fuel and reported that agglomerates of entangling fiber-like material are formed during crushing. These agglomerates make removal of metals and chloride-containing components difficult, and the paper proposes a treatment flowchart consisting of separate treatments of the coarse size fraction containing entangling fiber-like components and the smaller size fraction containing particulate matter. This paper reports the treatment of the smaller size fraction treated with jigging to obtain a low-ash and low-chloride-content product. A new washability curve was developed based on float and sink analysis test results, and it was applied to estimate the gravity separation performance of treatments such as jigging and dense medium separation. The estimated results show good agreement with the experimental results of jig separation.

    Automobile shredded residue is a potential solid fuel when its metal and chlorine-containing parts have been removed. The authors have investigated physical separation of automobile shredded residue to obtain the components that may be used in solid fuel and found that agglomerates of entangling fiber-like components are formed during crushing, making removal of metals and chlorine-containing parts difficult. In this paper, a reattachment ratio, entrapment ratio, and disentanglement ratio are proposed to evaluate the entanglement properties of crushed automobile shredded residue. It is found that products smaller than 16 mm were not reattached easily in the sieving process, and an index based on entanglement properties proposed here is useful to predict suitable crushing conditions. Wet detachment of entrapped particles from agglomerates of entangling materials was also applied to separate particulate matter from crushed ASR.

    Carrier microencapsulation, CME. is a technique to form a thin layer of metal oxide or hydroxide on pyrite surface using a water soluble organic carrier combined with metal ions. The present study investigated the effect of CME using a tris-catecholato complex of Si(4+), Si(cat)(3)(2-) on pyrite-coal separation by dynamic bubble pick-up experiments and Hallimond tube flotation experiments using coal, pyrite. and a coal-pyrite mixture. The mineral samples were treated in 0-5 mol m(-3) Si(cat)(3)(2-) solutions at pH 4-9 at treatment times of 1-24 h. Dynamic bubble pick-up experiments showed that CME treatment converted the pyrite surface from hydrophobic to hydrophilic but did not affect coal's hydrophobic surface. The results of the Hallimond tube flotation experiments of a coal-pyrite mixture at pH 7-9 in the presence of kerosene as a collector showed that pyrite floatability was selectively suppressed after 1 h CME treatment with 0.5 mol (3) Si(cat)(3)(2-) while both coal and pyrite were floated without the treatment. Thus indicates that CME treatment is effective in suppressing pyrite floatability in coal-pyrite flotation. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Nickel metal hydride batteries of hybrid vehicles contain Co and rare earth elements in the anode and cathode activating agents as well as in the main electrode component, Ni. The cathode electrodes comprise a porous Ni plate (cathode substrate) with nickel hydroxide as the cathode activating agent and the anode electrodes consist of a hydrogen storage alloy powder as the anode activating agent on a metal mesh substrate. A direct smelting method has been used to recover Ni from waste batteries, but the Co and rare earth elements are difficult to extract by this conventional method. To recycle Co and rare earth elements, physical pretreatment is necessary to separate the anode and cathode compounds before smelting. This study investigated the separation of anode and cathode activating agents in the <0.075 mm fraction of crushed nickel metal hydride batteries using a cyclone and the anode activating agent was concentrated in the underflow product. After crushing the waste batteries a mixture of cathode and anode activating agents is recovered as fines, and a simple and fast size distribution measurement method for each activating agent is desirable to evaluate the physical separation results and improve the separation efficiency. The results show that further size classification of the <0.075 mm fraction is effective to concentrate the anode activating agent for cylindrical type batteries. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V.

    The effect of chloride on chalcopyrite leaching has been investigated by performing batch leaching tests with three kinds of leaching solutions and using Hiroyoshi's model, which suggests that a zone of rapid leaching exists between the critical potential (E(c), equilibrium redox potential for the reduction of CuFeS(2) to Cu(2)S) and the oxidation potential (E(ox),, equilibrium redox potential for the oxidation of Cu(2)S). The results of the leaching tests show that the leaching rate in hydrochloric acid solution is the fastest and that the relationship between the Cu leaching rate and oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) follows Hiroyoshi's model. Thermodynamic calculations indicate that, with an increase in the chloride concentration, the concentration of cuprous ions increases as the chlorocuprate(I) complex ions are formed and the contribution of cuprous ions to the critical potential is greater than that of cupric ions, even though the concentration of cuprous ions is lower than that of cupric ions. This fact suggests that the formation of chlorocuprate(I) ions in a chloride solution may improve the chalcopyrite leaching rate by increasing the critical potential. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.

    The sorption of gold chloride ([image omitted]) from chloride solution on synthetic and natural magnetite powders was investigated by batch sorption experiments. The effects of different parameters on the recovery were studied. The results showed that Gold (Au) uptake by magnetite was influenced by pH, contact time, chloride concentration, and initial Au concentration. Gold uptake by synthetic and natural magnetite was maximum at pH 6-7 with sorption amounts of 4.4mol/g and 5.0mol/g, respectively, after 24hr at an initial Au concentration of 0.05mol/m3. The Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy Dispersive X-ray and Back Scattering Electron analyses of the magnetite particles after treatment confirmed the presence of Au precipitates on the magnetite (Fe3O4) surface.

    The development of mechanical methods for plastic-plastic separation is important for recycling of scrapped plastics of office/home appliances and cars. This paper proposes a Hybrid-Jig as it new method for plastic-plastic separation. The Hybrid-Jig was developed based on jigging and flotation, where air bubbles are introduced into the particle bed during jigging to modify the apparent specific gravity of the particles by the attachment of air bubbles to the particles so that particles having different surface properties can be separated by jigging even if their specific gravities are similar. To demonstrate the performance of the Hybrid-Jig, a laboratory scale TACUB jig was modified to induce air bubbles through the screen under the particle bed. and separation experiments of plastic particle mixtures were carried out tinder various displacements and frequencies of water pulsation. Feed samples were particle mixtures of two plastics chosen from eight kinds of plastics (3 of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), 4 of polyethylene (PE), and 1 of polyethylene terephthalate (PET)). The particles were cylindrical of 2-3 mm length and diameter, and their specific gravities were 1.05-1.55. In normal jig operation (without air bubbles), plastic particles with similar specific gravities were difficult to separate, but they were easily separated by the Hybrid-Jig, when air bubbles adsorbed on the surface of the more hydrophobic plastics, and the plastic particles with air bubbles were recovered as top product due to the decrease in apparent specific gravity, Because the differences in the hydrophobicity of the plastics cause the selective bubble attachment, high grade plastic products over 99.9 mass% were recovered by the Hybrid-Jig even for plastic mixtures having the same specific gravity.

    Nickel metal hydride batteries of hybrid vehicles contain rare metals such as Ni, Co, and rare-earth elements as electrode components. A direct smelting method has been used to recover Ni from waste batteries, but the Co and rare-earth elements are difficult to extract with this conventional method. To recycle Co and rare-earth elements, physical pretreatment is necessary to separate the anode and cathode compounds before smelting. This study investigated the magnetic separation of anode and cathode activating agents in the <0.075 mm fraction of crushed cylindrical and prismatic types batteries. In the cylindrical type anode activating agent concentrated in the non-magnetic product of the Davis tube tester, separated at low magnetic fields (0.1 T), while in the prismatic type anode activating agent concentrated in the magnetic product of high gradient magnetic separation. Microscope observations and results of the elemental analysis with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy showed that this separation behavior difference originates from differences in the cathode component manufacturing processes. An optimum physical treatment process using magnetic separation is proposed to recover the rare metal components. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Mechanical separation of different plastics should be established in planning and constructing a recycling plant for scrapped office and home appliances. The authors studied jig separation of small plastic particles (two types of burn-resistant polyethylene (PE) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC)) using a TACUB jig. The size of the particles was 0.5-3 mm and the specific gravities of the two PEs and PVC were about 1.1, 1.3 and 1.4, respectively. The jig separation experiments were carried out under various water pulsations, at which the amplitude, frequency, and pattern of pulsation were varied. Based on the observation of separation progress and water pulsation, it was found that the upstream velocity of the pulsation is a very important factor to form high grade PE and PVC product layers with high efficiency. Moderate fluidization of particle bed caused high separation performance. High-grade PE and PVC products over 99.8% were recovered under pulsations of small frequency and amplitude. The optimum separation condition was determined easily by measuring the fluidity of the plastic beds in the separation chamber. (C) 2009 Published by Elsevier B.V.

    Preferential breakage, where the boundary of mineral particles and coal substances are selectively broken up, is an effective comminution method for poor liberation coals such as middling coal subjected to jig treatment. A comparison of electrical disintegration (ED) product and roll crusher product of Nantun (China) clean coal was carried out in this study. Coal particles of 4 to 8 mm diameter with specific gravities of 1.35 to 1.45 were used as the feed and the crushed product was classified into 12 fractions by size and specific gravity and analyzed for ash and mineral content using a norm calculation method. The generation ratios of light clean coal and heavy waste fractions in the ED product were higher than in the roll crusher product and this indicates that ED improved the mineral liberation. The microscopic observations supported this. The norm calculation results showed that calcite, dolomite, and pyrite were concentrated in the heavy and fine fractions, a behavior that is different from that of kaolinite. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.

    Molten fly ash (MFA), generated by the melting process of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) solid residues in Japan, contains considerable amounts of heavy metals such as Pb, Zn, Cu and Cd. Therefore, MFA is classified as a hazardous waste and needs treatment for detoxification or recovery of heavy metals as secondary sources. Carrier-in-Pulp (CIP) method, which is similar in principle with the Carbon-in-Pulp technology for gold recovery from ores, was proposed to recover these heavy metals from molten fly ash. Unlike the traditional Carbon-in-Pulp process, the carrier or adsorbent in the Carrier-in-Pulp method is not only limited to carbon; other materials such as Fe powder can also be used. Moreover, other physical separation techniques such as magnetic separation can also be employed to harvest the carrier from the leach pulp. The present study, which can be regarded as a batch mode Carbon-in-Pulp process, investigated the application of the CIP technique to recover heavy metals from MSW molten fly ash containing 10.2 wt.% Zn, 2.78 wt.% Pb, 0.14 wt.% Cu, and 0.12 wt.% Cd. Granular activated carbon (GAC) was utilized as an adsorbent in batch adsorption tests and experiments involving the CIP method using NaCl as lixiviant. The effects of activated carbon dosage, pH, NaCl concentration, and treatment time were determined. Adsorption tests showed that the competition of metal ions present in a multi-component system suppressed the adsorption of Pb, Zn, Cu and Cd on GAC but the suppression can be minimized by increasing the GAC dosage. Around 90-100% of Pb, Zn, Cu and Cd were extracted from MFA at various conditions. At the optimum conditions (5 kmol m(-3) NaCl, 10 g GAC, pH 5-6, and 3 h treatment time), GAC recovered 57% Zn, 40% Pb, 90% Cu, and 54% Cd. The leaching test confirmed that the extraction of Pb from the CIP-treated residue was below the standard. thus, satisfying the land-filling guidelines in Japan. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.

    High grade limestone was obtained by removing trace impurities through reverse and carrier flotation techniques. A simple method for measuring the impurity content of limestone was developed by correlating the amount of impurities and the turbidity of suspensions of residue from limestone dissolved in 20% acetic acid. Impurity removal more than 50% with limestone recovery better than 85% was obtained under suitable conditions by both reverse flotation and carrier flotation using sodium oleate (NaOl) and dodecylammonium acetate (DAA) as collectors. Limestone containing more than 0.15 mass% impurity was used as the carrier. These results suggest that limestone treated by flotation can be used as high quality limestone in paper manufacturing.

    The rise in demand for coal due to growth in Asia is inducing coal price increases and it will be necessary to develop cleaning method for difficult-to-treat coal. High-efficiency power generation techniques are required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and it is necessary to reduce ash content of coal significantly before combustion. Advanced coal cleaning techniques can generate low ash coals and this paper reviews recent applications of low ash coal, recent developments in commercial scale and lab scale flotation, and research results of enhanced gravity separators and comminution.

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) molten fly ash is classified as a hazardous waste because it contains considerable amount of heavy metals, which pose environmental concern due to their leaching potential in landfill environment. This study proposes carrier-in-pulp (CIP) method as a new hydrometallurgical route to extract and recover Pb, Zn, Cu, and Cd from molten fly ash before landfilling. In this method, a carrier material, which recovers the extracted metals, is added simultaneously with fly ash to a leaching solution and is harvested from the pulp by physical separation method, such as magnetic separation or sieving. To demonstrate the effect of the CIP method, shaking flask experiments were conducted under various conditions using NaCl solution, iron powder as carrier, and molten fly ash. More than 99 wt% Pb, Zn, and Cd, and 97 wt% Cu were extracted from the ash. However, only Pb and Cu were recovered (96.3 wt% Pb and 94.3 wt% Cu) by the iron powder through cementation, leaving behind Zn and Cd ions in the solution phase. The leaching test conducted on the treated fly ash residue revealed that the CIP method suppressed the solubilization of Pb to a value below the landfill disposal guideline. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd.

    Pyrite (FeS2) is a common sulfide mineral associated with valuable metal minerals and coal, and it is rejected as a gangue mineral using physical separation techniques such as froth flotation and discharged into tailing pond. In the flotation, pyrite is frequently entrapped in the froth due to its hydrophobic nature. Formation of acid mine drainage due to the air-oxidation of pyrite in the tailing pond is also a serious problem. The authors have proposed carrier-microencapsulation (CME) as a method for suppressing both the floatability and oxidation of pyrite. In this method, pyrite is coated with a thin layer of metal oxide or hydroxide using catechol solution as a carrier combined with metal ions. The layer converts the pyrite surface from hydrophobic to hydrophilic and acts as a protective coating against oxidation. The present study demonstrates the effect of CME using Si-catechol complex to suppress the pyrite floatability: The bubble pick-up experiments showed that attachment of pyrite particles to air bubble is suppressed by the CME treatment at pH 4-10, Si-catechol complex concentration over 0.5 mol m(-3) and treatment time within 2 min. The Hallimond tube flotation experiments showed that the pyrite floatability is suppressed by the CME treatment even in the presence of typical flotation collectors such as kerosene and xanthate. SEM-EDX analysis confirmed that Si present on the pyrite surface treated by Sicatechol complex, implying that SiO2 or Si(OH4) layer formed by the CME treatment convert the pyrite surface hydrophobic to hydrophilic.

    This study investigated the effect of the addition of wetting agents on automobile shredded residue (ASR) wettability, and found that the surfactants diisooctyl sodium sulfosuccinate (AOT) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) were effective to improve immersion of the ASR, due to their ability to reduce the solution surface tension and the contact angle of ASR. Urethane foam is a bulky compound in ASR and its immersion and wetting behavior showed similar changes as those of the ASR samples. With SDS the surface wettability of urethane was improved. The surfactant solutions were also effective in the detachment of the entrapped particles from the agglomerate of entangling fiber like materials. The effects of the surfactant concentrations on ASR wettability and the amount of detached particles are described. [doi: 10.2320/matertrans.M-MRA2008824]

    Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is a good solvent for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and it has been proposed for use in PVC recycling. In the recycling process, fine particles of 3PbO.PbSO4.H2(O), used as a thermal stabilizer in PVC products, are dispersed and not dissolved in the solvent. To establish methods for removing of 3PbO.PbSO4.H2O particles from the solvent, factors affecting the dispersion-flocculation behavior of the particles in MEK were investigated. The zeta potential and particle distribution of 3PbO.PbSO4.H2O particles in MEK solutions containing known amounts of H2O were measured. Above 5 vol%H2O in MEK solutions, the zeta potential of 3PbO.PbSO4.H2O particles approached zero and the flocculation of particles was achieved. In addition, it was found that Pb2+ and Cl- affect the zeta potential of the particles. These results indicate that the dispersion-flocculation behavior of lead particles can be influenced by the concentration of H2O, Ph2+, and Cl- in MEK. [doi: 10.2320/matertrans.M-MRA2008822]

    Cobalt-rich ferromanganese crust and nodule ores from seamount areas contain volcanic and sedimentary rocks as substrate or nuclei. During mining operations, these rocks should be separated as unfavorable waste rocks with the ferromanganese minerals. The cobalt-rich ferromanganese crust and nodule ores require mineral processing to remove the substrate/nuclei rock before the smelting. Deep-sea manganese nodule ores in contrast contain vanishingly small rocks, and can be directly treated with a metallurgical process without mineral processing treatment. This study is a physical and chemical description of the ores for the purpose of mineral processing, and reports estimates of the degree of liberation in a coarse crushed product of ores and its gravity separation results. From the obtained results a process flow-sheet for the beneficiation of cobalt-rich ferromanganese crust and nodules is proposed. (c) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    The oxidation of pyrite causes the formation of acid mine drainage polluted by heavy metals. This paper proposes carrier-microencapsulation (CME) for preventing pyrite oxidation. In CME, an organic agent is used as an in-situ carrier for transporting Ti from Ti minerals to the pyrite surface through an aqueous phase. Then, the organic carrier is decomposed and Ti(OH)(4) or TiO2 film is formed on the pyrite surface as a protective coating against oxidation. To demonstrate the effect of CME on pyrite oxidation, shaking-flask leaching experiments of ground pyrite were performed at 298 K in air for 25 days, with or without anatase (TiO2) and catechol (1,24hydroxybenzene) as the organic carrier. The amounts of Fe and S extracted from the pyrite were lower with TiO2 and catechol than without TiO2 or catechol, indicating that CME using TiO2 and catechol is effective in suppressing pyrite oxidation. When TiO2 and catechol coexist, the Ti concentration in the solution phase increased initially and then decreased. SEM-EDX analysis of the CME-treated pyrite showed that Ti and 0 are present on the pyrite surface. Cyclic voltammogram of catechol showed that catechol was oxidized on pyrite electrode. These results indicate that Ti is extracted from TiO2 by catechol as a Ti-catechol complex and that the complex is adsorbed and oxidized on pyrite to form a Ti (OH)(4) or TiO2 coating suppressing pyrite oxidation.

    A recovery method for electrode compounds from waste nickel metal hydride batteries by physical separation using sizing and distance-variable magnetic separation was investigated. The electrodes are formed by bonding substances of substrate and fine activating agents. Fine particle separation causes increasing costs and decreasing separation efficiency, suggesting a treatment flow where the separation of the anodic compounds from the cathodic compounds is carried out first and then each compound is crushed again for the liberation of activating agents and substrate. There is no suitable magnetic separation equipment to separate ferromagnetic substances using the magnetic property differences in the substrate components and special equipment to achieve this was developed. Using this newly developed equipment resulted in good separation.

    High grade limestone was obtained by removing trace impurities through flotation techniques such as reverse flotation and carrier flotation. Impurity removal of more than 50 % with limestone recovery higher than 85% was obtained under suitable conditions by both reverse flotation and carrier flotation using sodium oleate (NaOl) and dodecyl ammonium acetate (DAA) as collectors. Limestone of 0.15 w/w % impurity was used as a carrier. These results indicate that the limestone treated by flotation can be used as a high quality limestone in paper manufacturing.

Graphic analysis of these curves is proposed to give the ultimate ash content of coal concentrate obtained under ideal conditions an...

    多量の黄鉄鉱を含む低品位石炭を燃焼させると黄鉄鉱から酸性雨の原因となる亜硫酸ガスが発生するので、燃焼前に石炭から黄鉄鉱を効率よく分離除去する技術を開発することが課題になっている。しかし,石炭から分離して堆積場に捨てられた黄鉄鉱が風化すると重金属を含んだ酸性汚濁水が生じるので,その発生を抑制する技術を開発することも必要である。本研究では,これら2つの課題を同時に解決することを目的として,石炭中の黄鉄鉱の表面を選択的に親水/抗酸化性の薄膜で被覆した後に,石炭から浮選分離する新しい方法を提案し,モデル実験によりメカニズムと効果,最適施工条件などを明らかにした。

    研究代表者および分担者らの研究室で開発した網下気室型湿式比重選別機(TACUB JIG)をベースにして,より選別効率の高い比重選別機の開発に取り組み,以下に述べる3タイプの新しい比重選別機を開発した。1)TACUB JIGのフィード部および産物回収部に改良を加え,さらに制御法を工夫して,廃棄物の資源化・リサイクルに適した比重選別機(RETAC JIG)を開発し,種々のプラスチックを素材別に選別することを可能にした。2)このRETAC JIGをベースにして,比重差が無くても濡れ性に差があれば比重選別できるHybrid JIGを開発した。この選別機では,気泡を導入して,より疎水性の粒子表面に微細気泡を選択的に付着させることで,その見かけ比重を小さくして,物質間に見かけ比重差を生じさせて,比重分離する。このJIGにより,比重の同じプラスチックの相互選別が可能になった。3)水より軽い物質相互を分離するため,RETAC JIGの選別槽上部に天網を設置し,この天網の下にフィードして上下に脈動を与えることで,天網下部に比重別に産物を成層させて選別できるREVERSE JIGを開発した。4)上述の新たに開発した3タイプの比重選別機をあわせてAdvanced JIGと総称し,本Advanced JIGを組み合わせることで廃家電リサイクルプラントから排出されるプラスチックを素材別に選別して,マテ...

    現在,日本で行われている重金属汚染土の物理洗浄法(物理選別)は,欧米方式をそのまま採用しているが,この方法では重金属微粒子と土微粒子の物理選別ができないため,微粒群は全量,最終処分対象となり,微粒土の割合が欧米に比べて高い日本では,最終処分する微粒土が多量に発生するという問題が生じている。そこで本研究では,限られた形態の重金属しか除去できなかった既存の処理法に化学的前処理を融合させ,重金属の存在形態の転換を図ることで各種形態の重金属の物理選別を可能にする土壌処理プロセスを考案し,検討している。具体的には1)環境中で容易に分解する錯体を用いて重金属を可溶化し,2)可溶化した重金属を媒体表面にセメンテーションの原理を利用して選択濃縮し,3)この重金属が濃縮した媒体を物理選別で精度よく分離・除去する方法の開発を目的としている。本年度は最終年度である。初年度は「模擬試料を用いた各工程の個別試験」を行い,2年度は「実汚染土壌を用いた処理試験」を行なった。最終年度(本年度)は,実汚染土壌の処理に際しての処理条件の最適化および処理を阻害する因子の検討を行い,考案した処理手法の有用性を確かめることができた。以上のように,おおよそ研究実施計画通りに研究を順調に進めることができた。

    近年、斑岩銅鉱床の低品位鉱から銅を生産するためにヒープリーチング(露天掘り採掘した鉱石を野積みし、この上部から硫酸溶液を散布して銅分をイオンの形で溶出させ、溶媒抽出-電解採取などにより高純度の金属銅を生産する方法)が広く用いられるようになってきている。しかし、ヒープリーチングの対象は鉱床浅部に存在する酸化銅鉱や2次硫化銅鉱に限られ、鉱床深部の主要銅鉱物である黄銅鉱(CuFeS_2)は浸出速度が遅いので対象とできなかった。鉱床浅部の酸化銅鉱や2次硫化銅鉱はいずれ枯渇するので、黄銅鉱に適したヒープリーチング技術を開発することは重要である。黄銅鉱は酸化反応で浸出されるので,従来は高い浸出速度を得るためには酸化的雰囲気(高い酸化還元電位)を保つべきだと考えられてきた。しかし,我々は過度に高い電位では黄銅鉱表面が不働態化して浸出速度が低下することをこれまでの基礎研究で明らかにしてきた。この知見に基づき,本研究では,酸化還元電位を制御することで黄銅鉱の浸出を高速化することを目指した。平成17年度は,フラスコ浸出実験と電気化学実験により黄銅鉱浸出速度の電位依存性を調べ,浸出の最適電位がCu^<2+>、Fe^<2+>濃度の関数となることを明らかにした.平成18年度は,カラム浸出実験を実施し,鉱石堆積層の上部から散布する溶液のpHと電位の制御で黄銅鉱の浸出を促進できることを確かめた.平成19年...

    循環型社会を構築していくうえで鍵を握るのは,都市域における廃棄物の資源化・リサイクル技術および環境保全技術の開発である。我々は,廃自動車や廃家電・OA機器類の資源化技術を開発してきている。この開発過程で,現状の処理プロセスでは解砕・破砕が主として減容化を目的に行われているため,その後の有価物選別・回収の段階で低い選別精度,回収率にとどまること,解砕・破砕時に発生するシュレッダーダストの軽比重物(例えばウレタンなど)に絡み込んでいる有価物が十分に回収できないことを見出した。そこで種々の有機・無機複合廃棄物を効率的に資源化・リサイクルする立場から,解砕・破砕,選別を合理的に行うための要素技術の開発研究に取り組んだ。最終年度にあたる19年度は,下記のような検討を行い,有用な知見を得た。1)二つの使用済み自動車のシュレーダーダストを対象に,破砕後に種々の風力分級をして,産物について化学分析,灰分測定,組成解析などを行った。その結果,サーマルリサイクルに適した,ウレタンなどの可燃分からなる産物を回収できるプロセスの条件を明らかにした。2)ウレタン類に鉄・銅・アルミニウムなどの金属類,繊維などが絡まっている場合は,ある種の界面活性剤溶液に浸漬することで,有価金属類を分離回収できることを見出した。3)17〜19年度の成果を踏まえ,各種有機・無機複合廃棄物に対する適切な破砕・解砕法と有価物回...

    都市域の廃棄物資源化拠点としてのアーバンマインについて検討し,その構築に不可欠な要素技術を開発するとともに,これらの成果を活用した自律分散型のアーバンマインとそれらを緩やかにリンクさせたシステム(ホロニック・パス)について考察し提言した。主な成果は,以下のようである。1) 廃棄物中の有価物を資源化・リサイクルするのに適した湿式比重選別機として網下気室型比重選別機 (RETAC Jig) を開発し,本機を用いて次のような実証試験を行い,その有用性を確認した。a) 廃コンクリートからの骨材,モルタル分の回収・リサイクル b) 廃蛍光管からの各種ガラスの回収・リサイクル c) 鉛汚染土壌中の鉛粒子の回収 d) 使用済自動車や廃家電のリサイクル工場で発生するシュレッダーダスト中の有価物回収2) また本機をベースに,固体粒子の比重と表面濡れ性の差を利用して,比重差が無くても選別できるHybrid Jigを世界で初めて開発した。さらに,水より軽い物質の選別が可能なReverse Jigも開発した。3) Ni-水素電池から正極物質,負極物質を効率よく分離・回収するプロセスを開発した。4) 重金属汚染土壌からの重金属回収,汚染防止のための技術として,microencapsulation法およびleaching,cementation, magnetic separationからなるハイブリッ...

    比較的低温の熱処理技術である炭化処理に注目し,16種類の様々な都市廃棄物と産廃廃棄物の炭化物を製造し、廃棄物およびその処理により得られた炭化物の物理・化学的な組成、発熱量などを分析し,質向上の方法について検討した。まず炭化物の燃料利用の際に装置腐食などの問題を起こす塩素に注目し、水溶性の程度によって形態を分類・定量した。炭化物中塩素の大部分は水溶性であり、水洗による塩素除去効果は高い。一方、セメントキルン用燃料としては揮発性塩素0.1%が目標となっており、水洗により0.16%,炭酸化処理により0.11%程度となり、ほぼ満足出来ることが分かった。炭化物中の灰分除去方法として重液選別、および石炭の灰分除去技術である浮選、液中造粒を適用し、合わせて灰分の存在形態について考察した。炭化物の発熱量(質)と可燃分回収率にはトレードオフ関係が見られ,都市ごみ炭化物の場合浮選あるいは液中造粒によって発熱量20000kJ/kg及び灰分30%以下の目標値を満足はできるが,可燃分の回収率は20%まで低下した。カーシュレッダー炭化物については、基準値を満足させることが不可能であった。炭化物中の灰分は可燃分と結合しており,粉砕等を行っても分離は困難である。最後に,炭化処理を廃棄物の埋立前処理として検討するため、嫌気性埋立、好気性埋立を各々模擬したカラム実験を行った。炭化物からの有機物溶出は原廃棄物と比...

    本研究では,鉱山酸性汚濁水の発生を防止する新しい方法としてキャリアマイクロエンカプセレーション(Carrier Micro Encapsulation, CME)を提案する.本法では,地殻中に存在するTiO_2などの鉱物中のTiを有機キャリアで水に可溶化して,汚染源となる黄鉄鉱FeS_2などの表面に吸着させた後,キャリアを分解して化学的に安定なTiO_2薄膜で汚染源を被覆し,水や空気から遮蔽する.昨年度の結果に基づき,Tiとの錯体形成能力や酸化分解性に優れたカテコール(1,2-dihydroxybenzene, C_6H_4(OH)_2)をキャリアとして選択し,黄鉄鉱粉末(粒子径53〜75μm)の溶解に対するCMEの効果を振盪フラスコ法によるモデル実験で調べた.実験は天然Ti鉱物の代替物として試薬アナターゼ(TiO_2)5kg/Lを用いて,黄鉄鉱-溶液比0.6kg/L,温度25℃,大気下で行った。CMEを施した実験(カテコールとTiO_2を添加した実験)では,黄鉄鉱表面にTiO_2あるいはTi(OH)_2の被膜が形成され、対照実験(カテコールとTiO_2の双方あるいは一方を添加しなかった実験)に比べて黄鉄鉱の溶解量(硫酸とFeの溶出量)が少なくなり,pHの低下が緩和された.黄鉄鉱溶解に対するCMEの抑制作用は,カテコール添加濃度0.01kmol m^<-3>以上,pH4〜7の...
