Scope Electrolytic processing is used commercially to recover and/or refine metals including large–scale production of aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel, and zinc as well as, on a smaller scale, for recovery and refining of gold and silver. There are also exciting opportunities to utilize electrometallurgy in the production of titanium, lead, and other metals. Electrolytic processing of metals faces common challenges that include energy utilization, chemistry, productivity, and safety. To meet the present challenges in commercial electrometallurgy, a variety of technological advances have been made. Similar challenges will be faced in the future, requiring process improvements and innovations.

The 3rd International Symposium on Electrometallurgy – building on the success of Orlando 2012 and Quebec City 2016, will bring together industry, consulting engineers and researchers to discuss fundamental research, development, and/or application of innovative aqueous or molten salt electrometallurgical processing technologies for the extraction of metals.

The Symposium will provide a forum for the international metallurgical community to discuss innovative approaches to reduce the energy consumption during electrolysis of metals. This Symposium is organized by TMS and Met Soc, with the leadership of the TMS Extraction and Processing Division, with support from the Hydrometallurgy and Electrometallurgy, Process Modeling and Technology, and Pyrometallurgy Committees.
