Feb 01, 2019· 1. Introduction. The proper disposal of industrial solid wastes containing heavy metals is a great challenge. Otherwise, it leads to secondary pollution by contaminating the air, soil and water bodies (Xiao et al., 2015, Guo et al., 2017, Mao et al., 2018).The LZSS is a solid waste which is generated after the separation of lead and zinc from their ores during smelting.

carded slag from the smelter. Discard slag may contain 0.5–0.7% lead/zinc and is frequently used as fill or for sandblasting. Slags with higher lead/ zinc) content—say, 15% zinc—can be sent for metals recovery. Leaching processes produce resi-dues, while effluent treatment results in sludges that require appropriate disposal. The smelting

Dariba Smelting Complex Overview. The Dariba hydrometallurgical zinc smelter is located in the Rajsamand district of Rajasthan in Northwest India. The smelter has a capacity of 240,000 MT of zinc and 120,000 MT of lead. In the year ended March 2020, it produced 200,689 MT of zinc and 86,454 MT of lead.

After the reduction has been completed, the molten slag and lead are taken out of the furnace hearth at a temperature that is approximately equal to the melting point of the slag. The slag runs over the top into a granulation system and is water quenched, granulated, and discarded. Metal values in the slag include approximately 5% zinc and 0.5% ...

ARCHIVED

A method of processing a ferroalloy waste slag in a reactor which includes the steps of treating the slag with a metallic reductant and a conditioning flux to release a metal oxide and reduce it to metallic form, to use as a commercially acceptable silicon-containing alloy and to form a waste slag which is detoxified by means of granulation and separating the detoxified slag from …

Zinc Smelting

The calcined ore that comes out of the rotary kiln is charged into an electric furnace while maintaining a high temperature. The calcined ore is separated into metal and slag through heating and reductive dissolution by electricity and coal. The slag will be water-granulated and distributed as steel solvent or aggregate (product name: green sand).

Effects of Zinc Smelting Waste Slag Treated with Root ...

Lead and zinc smelting slag contains several poisonous elements such as arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd) and chromium (Cr), which makes it hazardous and unacceptable for stockpiling or landfilling [6–8]. The zinc extracted from MSD has potential economic benefits in recycling, reuse, exploitation and application of solid waste pollutants [ 9 – 12 ].

GRANULATED SMELTER SLAG**** Abstract Smelter slag is obtained in the process of metallurgical converting of copper concentrate in the Smel-ter Plant in Bor, Serbia. Today, the reserves of this material are evaluated at about more of a year, with the average copper content of 0.6-0.9%. Production of copper concentrate by flotation of smelter slag

Zinc recovery from metallurgical slag and dust by ...

Lead-Zinc Smelting Slag (LZSS) is an industrial waste produced during the smelting of lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) from their ores. It is considered hazardous waste as to it contains a number of heavy metals including Pb, Zn, Cu, Mn, Cr, Cd and Ni etc.

Toxicity of smelter slag

ISF slag is a by-product, generated during the primary smelting of zinc ore in a form of blast furnace. It is a granulated, glassy material and has the appearance of dark coloured sand. It typically has a particle size distribution between coarse and fine sand, and a higher specific gravity than sand due to its metal content (Figure 2).

The toxicity of five smelter slag-contaminated sediments from the upper Columbia River and metals associated with those slags (cadmium, copper, zinc) was evaluated in 96-h exposures of White Sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus Richardson, 1836) at 8 and 30 days post-hatch. Leachates prepared from slag-contaminated sediments were evaluated for toxicity.

Granulated Slag Pile, an area of approximately 130 acres located east of Anaconda along Montana Highway 1. This pile consists of an estimated 26.5 million tons of slag, roughly half of the total produced. Over 40 million tons of slag were produced during the 100 years of copper smelting and refining in Anaconda.
