New Developments and Applications of Ion-exchange Techniques for the Mineral Industry.
Proc Conf on Ion Exchange in the Process Industries Soc Chem Ind Imperial College :8 pages
Essential features of various applications of ion-exchange processes in the mineral industry are reviewed. Included in this work has been the development of improved ion-exchange contactors and operating techniques; the use of ion exchangers, both solid and liquid, for removing sulfate and recovering sulfur and sodium carbonate from brines and sea water; production of sulfur and sodium carbonate from gypsum; production of barium chloride from barite; recovery of potassium from brines; and the application of liquid ion- exchange techniques for the recovery of zinc, copper and aluminum.
