Assessment of supply interruption of rhenium, recycling, processing sources and technologies
Rhenium is a unique, valuable and extremely rare chemical element currently used as an alloying element in high-temperature superalloys for aerospace and industrial gas-fired turbines and also as a catalyst in petrochemical ...
A review of acid recovery from acidic mining waste solutions using solvent extraction
The minerals industry is increasingly being forced by regulatory and cost pressures to reduce the amount of liquid acidic waste they produce. This requires a strong focus on waste reduction by recycling, regeneration and ...
The optimal use of tris-2-ethylhexylamine to recover hydrochloric acid and metals from leach solutions and comparison with other extractants
This paper describes the use of TEHA for HCl recovery from a leach solution generated by a hydrometallurgical plant. Four organic extractants were tested including TEHA, Alamine 336, Cyanex 923 and TBP. TEHA organic system ...
Attribute and technology value mapping for conceptual product design phase
The main focus of this paper is how the concept design phase of the product development process can be improved by using an objective data-driven approach in selecting a final concept design to progress further. A quantitative ...
Effective speaker verification via dynamic mismatch compensation
This paper presents a new approach to Condition-adjusted T-Norm (CT-Norm) for speaker verification under significant mismatched noise conditions. The study is motivated by the fact that, whilst the standard CT-Norm method ...
In vitro toxicity of nanosized copper particles in PC12 cells induced by oxidative stress
Recent evidence suggests that some nanomaterials, which are widely used in many fields, have health effects. In order to investigate the cytotoxicity induced by nanosized copper particles (nano-Cu), PC12 cells, which were ...
