Metal recovery from jarosite waste – A resin screening study (2017)
Journal Article
Riley, A. L., Pepper, S. E., Canner, A. J., Brown, S. F., & Ogden, M. D. (2018). Metal recovery from jarosite waste – A resin screening study. Separation Science and Technology, 53(1), 22-35. https://doi.org/10.1080/01496395.2017.1378679

Work has been carried out screening hydrometallurgical resins for application in the valorization of industrially produced jarosite. Of the seven resins tested, anion exchange resins performed poorly for valuable metal recovery. Purolite S950+ and S9... Read More about Metal recovery from jarosite waste – A resin screening study.
