Extraction of nickel from a spent catalyst



A discussion started in 2004 but continuing through 2017

2004

Q. Dear sir,

I need your help regarding the electrowinning of nickel from a spent catalyst solution. First I will explain the composition of my catalyst pellet. This consists of Ni, Al, Cu, Fe and some unknown elements and insoluble inserts. I have taken 100 g of catalyst powder, 500 ml of water and 80 ml of Sulphuric acid. I heated this for 2 hr in a 1000 ml beaker. Further filtration I got a clear green colour solution. This is called as spent nickel solution. The Spent solution (pH <2) I am having contains 5.000 g Ni/Litre, 0.056 g Fe /Litre, 0.025 g Cu /Liter and some unknown elements. My question is how to electrowin the Ni from this solution or Please suggest some economical method to separate the nickel from the solution and how to do that method?

A. For electrowinning, you need a purified nickel sulphate solution. Do you have the apparatus for electrowinning?. Electrowinning is done at 2-3 pH.
