In this paper, recovery of scandium from red mud leaching solution by emulsion liquid membrane (ELM) was studied. Composition of ELM is P507+ span80 + sulfonated kerosene + HCl. Effects of mobile carrier and surfactant concentration, Roi, Rwe, internal and external aqueous phase acidity on the extracting rate of Sc3+ were studied. Results show that it is feasible for ELM extracting Sc3+ from the red mud leaching solution. The optimum condition for ELM extracting scandium from the red mud is P507%=8%, Span80%=7%, Roi=2:3, Rwe=6, internal aqueous c(HCl)=2 mol/L, external aqueous phase pH=2. The extracting rate of Sc3+ can reach to 98% under optimal condition.
