Abstract
Residual cr6+ is electrochemically reduced to cr3+ with the simultaneous electrowinning of copper from spent cr6+ oxidizing solutions containing cu2+. A spent cr6+ etching solution for brass was electrolyzed using electrodes of a metallurgical coke (-8+16 mesh particles) contained in plexiglass frames having on opposite surfaces polypropylene screens. Electrical contact was provided by small platinum strips. The solution was electrolyzed for 24-48 h at 4-6 V. A cell efficiency after 24 h of electrolysis was 89 pct with a cu removal efficiency of 96 pct.
