These initial scoping tests show that silver minerals can be efficiently concentrated using relatively simple froth flotation
In this new application, researchers use froth flotation
to recycle energy storage components within the Li-ion battery.
is a kind of ore dressing process based on the different hydrophobic nature of its composed particles, involving complicated physicochemical reactions.
methods have been applied aiming at the separation of PET from PVC.
Fortunately, the process of mineral separation by froth flotation
was being developed at the time.
The work will also improve the froth flotation
process used for separating minerals from waste rock.
is a process designed to separate hydrophobic particles selectively in an aqueous medium, in which gas bubbles are dispersed.
APPLICATION: This laboratory technique allows quantitative and systematic study of froth flotation
and dissolved-air flotation processes important to the paper recycling industry.
Despite the similar flotation responses of the two minerals, froth flotation
remains a sensible research alternative for the selective separation of fine-sized ilmenite-rutile mixtures.
under license from Argonne National Laboratory, which previously developed a froth flotation
process to separate ABS from PS for refrigerator-scrap recovery.
, a popular method in m odern de-inking technology, works well for particles 25-50 microns in diameter.
Argonne is developing a separate process based on density separation and a modified froth flotation
process to separate the thermoplastics from each other.
