• To make possible the electrolytic zinc production from secondary zinc recycling
• Fluoride removal before zinc electrowinning stage avoiding the cathodic corrosion
• An improvement to increase the sustainability of the zinc and steelmaking industries
• The impurities evolution along the developed process before cementation is studied.
The most important limitation of leached Waelz Oxide from the pyrometallurgical treatment of Electric Arc Furnace Dust (EAFD) is its high fluorine content. This work deals with the reduction of the harmful effects of the Double Leached Waelz Oxide fluorine content in the hydrometallurgical process for electrolytic zinc production process when it is used as raw material directly in the leaching stage. The resulting process is a purification treatment of Double Leached Waelz Oxide leach solution to remove the dissolved fluoride in this unpurified zinc liquor. Leached fluorides from this liquor are precipitated in order to reduce their concentration until the specified values, avoiding cathode corrosion in the electrowinning cells. In this paper a selective precipitation process to maximize the fluoride removal and to minimize the zinc losses is presented, achieving the industrially specified solution composition when the Zinc Calcine is the used raw material. The formation of aluminium-fluoride complexes and the variation of their solubilities with the pH evolution are the basis of the proposed treatment. In addition, this fluoride removal has also been improved and optimized in order to be integrated in the overall industrial hydrometallurgical process and the obtained results are presented and discussed proving the viability of this improved stage.
