Situation and Technology Progress of Lead Smelting in China


Article Preview

The present paper reviews the situation and technology progress of lead smelting in China. According to the new lead smelting processes, this paper also presents a lead oxygen-enriched flash smelting technology, whose intellectual property rights are completely owned by China,it points out that lead smelting processes develop as follow: lower environmental pollution, higher metal recovery rate, more effective for complex low grade lead-bearing ore materials, lower energy consumption and higher automation degree.
