Leaching Process

Metallurgy
Efficient process line for precious metals winning

Reserves of high-grade copper ores are finite, and their future availability is critical. Additionally E-wastes and other sources contains valuable metals such as Au, Ag, Pt, Ni. It’s increasingly important to extract these metals can be recovered by using hydrometallurgical processes.

SMS Siemag Process Technology GmbH, a member of the SMS group, draws on in-depth expertise in HCl-based hydrometallurgy as well as acid recovery for the metal industry. Our hydrometallurgical leaching laboratory in Vienna defines potential processing routes.
