Abstract
Environmental and economic concerns over the last decades have introduced new research opportunities for the application of several techniques in order to improve the removal of contaminants, as well as to explore methods to recover added-value elements. One example could be the recovery of metals ions from mining activity wastewaters in an approach to circular economy scheme. Therefore, in this work the separation and recovery of Zn and Cu, from acidic mine waters, as valuable metals is propose...
