Energy savings by means of fuel cell electrodes in electro-chemical industries. Progress report, August 1, 1979-October 31, 1979

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Initial efforts in studies of the effects of fuel cell electrodes on energy savings in electrochemical processes have been directed toward assembling test hardware and evaluation of a new zinc plant feed. A complete chemical analysis of the feed is reported. Utilizing the 2'' x 2'' (active electrode area) hardware and techniques developed under Contract No. ET-78-C-02-4881, 6 h zinc electrowinning tests demonstrated a current efficiency of greater than 90% with an energy consumption of 0.54 to 0.55 kWh/lb of zinc. For these tests, 0.1 g/l gelatin was employed as an electrolyte additive and the resultant zinc plates were bright, ... continued below
