Cu-metal droplets
Project description

During the recycling process at Umicore indicates the loss of Cu-metal droplets in the slag give rise to problems with process control and efficiency. The main objective of this project is to gain insight into the mechanisms that underlie the drop formation, growth and -decantatie in snails, so that the knowledge gained can be transferred to the industrial process.
