TMS 2012: Continuing Education:
Electrowinning and Electrorefining of Copper and Zinc Short Course
March 11-15, 2012 • Orlando, FL

Who should attend:
This course will provide valuable information for those working in copper and zinc electrowinning operations as well as those in the copper electrorefining industry. Download the Course Flier (PDF).


Workshop Overview

This course will provide general fundamental information about electrochemical processing of metals that apply to a wide variety of metals. The attendees will learn about overvoltages, electrolyte composition, current density, current efficiency, power consumption, deposit smoothing, and many other factors that are relevant to industrial electrowinning and electrorefining.

This course will provide more in-depth information about industrial electrowinning of copper and zinc, including commercial operating parameters, solution purification, power, and current issues. The short course will also include an overview of fundamentals and commercial practices for copper electrorefining.
