The energy used to produce liquid steel in todays integrated and electric arc furnace EAF facilities is significantly higher than the theoretical minimum energy requirements. This study presents the absolute minimum energy required to produce steel from ore and mixtures of scrap and scrap alternatives.
Copper minerals generally occur as oxides or sulfides. These require different treatments for extraction of the metal. The oxides are exposed to acid in a heap leach this liberates the copper ions and the resulting solution is then sent to the solvent extraction SX process followed by electrowinning EW of the copper.

The slurry suction head can either be connected directly to a removable flexible hose coupling, or to one or more modular lengths of rigid transfer piping. This allows the system to be adapted for most applications in SX settlers and can be readily tailored to client-specific requirements.
Aug 16, 2012 Aluminum production in the United States generally takes two forms, with very different energy requirements. Primary production involves making aluminum products from raw material or ingots, which is highly energy intensive, especially electricity intensive. Secondary production involves recycling aluminum scrap to form new products, a ...

Energy and Environmental Profile of the U.S. Mining Industry 5.1 Process Overview 5.1.1 Copper Ore Mining Copper is commonly extracted from surface, underground and increasingly, from in situ operations. In 2000, the principal mining States, in descending order, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Montana, accounted for 99 percent of domestic ...
Dec 20, 2013 Dec 20, 2013 An analysis of energy usage in the production of refined cathode copper was made from mining ore to cathode copper. In mining copper ore the greatest energy consumers are ore hauling and blasting. Another important factor is the recovery efficiency of the metallurgical processes used to extract the copper. The mining and mineral concentrating energies are directly

SX-EW skips the smelting process and goes straight to the end metal. If SX-EW can materially reduce the carbon footprint of the copper produced, will we see more prevalence of copper production using this method Unfortunately, very few new copper projects have ores that can be treated naturally with this processing method.
Leaching offers an alternative to copper mining. First, the ore is treated with dilute sulphuric acid. This trickles slowly down through the ore, over a period of months, dissolving copper to form a weak solution of copper sulphate. The copper is then recovered by electrolysis. This process is known as SX-EW solvent extractionelectrowinning.
Process Description In this case the customer is running a CCD circuit to remove leached copper from the waste solids. The first washer overflow proceeds to clarification followed by a solvent extraction SX stage, and finally electrowinning to release the pure copper metal. The waste solids are
