Phases and phase assemblages in the CuCl-(Cu,Zn)SO4 system are often encountered in both biomass combustion and metal making processes, and are problematic due to their deposition on the surfaces of super heaters. Recently, these problems have been boldly emerged with the drastic increase in the renewable energy and metals production, sparking the need to develop thermodynamic databases for a better understanding and control. In the present work, phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of phases in the CuCl-(Cu,Zn)SO4 system were investigated. Thermodynamic data of the main components were compiled and critically assessed over a wide temperature and composition ranges to obtain accurate thermodynamic parameters. The obtained results will be presented and discussed.
