Ammoniacal Etching of Copper
I have a prospect who recovers clean nickel from scrap nickel plated with solder and/or copper using ammonium chloride and ammonia solution. The resultant waste is blue spent etchant 2 Cu (NH3) 4 C 12 which requires further treatment.
Preliminary jar tests require 50-60 ml 18% liquid PAC per 1 liter wastewater (after ten times dilution) in coagulation and sludge volume is approximately 70%.
We are also evaluating ferric chloride and TMT 15 as coagulants.
Please advise any alternative to treat these concentrated etchant 3 m3/day to comply with statutory requirement.
