Abstract
The exhaustion of Cu reserves minable and processable with the available technology is forcing the hydrometallurgical copper industry to seek alternative sources. Following circular economy principles, researchers’ attention has focused on the recovery of valuable metals from the acidic waste streams generated. Nowadays, membrane technologies are being selected as the first alternative for the treatment and valorisation of such acidic waste streams. Among them, a new generation of high acidity...
