Summary

As the first book to compile the fundamentals, applications, reference information and analytical tools on the topic, Hydrometallurgy presents a condensed collection of information that can be used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness with which metals are extracted, recovered, manufactured, and utilized in aqueous media in technically viable and reliable, environmentally responsible, and economically feasible ways. Suitable for students and researchers, this college-level overview addresses Fundamentals of Chemical Metallurgy in Aqueous Media, Speciation and Phase Diagrams, Rate Processes in Aqueous Metal Processing, Aqueous Metal Extraction and Leaching, Fundamentals of Metal Concentration Processes and more.

Author Biography

MICHAEL L. FREE, PhD, is Professor of Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Utah. Dr. Free's research sheds new light on metal processing and interactions in aqueous media. He has been the principal investigator for fifty research projects funded by the Department of Energy, Office of Naval Research, National Science Foundation, and various private corporations. Dr. Free has also authored or coauthored more than 100 publications.
