Donald Sadoway



Antoine Allanore
Extraction & Processing Division Distinguished Lecturer
Lecture Title: “Towards Sustainable Metal Production by Molten Oxide Electrolysis”

Date: Monday, March 4 at 9:00 a.m
Location: Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Room 006D
 
Speaker: Antoine Allanore, Thomas B. King Assistant Professor of Metallurgy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, speaking on behalf of Donald Sadoway, John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
 
Abstract: Molten oxide electrolysis (MOE) produces liquid metal and oxygen gas by the electrolytic decomposition of metal oxide feed dissolved in a molten oxide solvent. Since no carbon is used either as reductant or heat source, there are no CO2 emissions from the smelter, and specific energy consumption is lower than current technology. Obviously, the source of electricity for an MOE smelter must be carbon-free as is the practice with aluminum, e.g., hydroelectric or nuclear. With its low capital cost, MOE is economically viable at smaller scale than many of today’s thermochemical technologies. The relevant electrochemistry of the process will be presented along with the materials science behind the oxygen evolving inert anode.
