Abstract

This paper describes the electrolysis in detail and presents the results of bench-scale tests of the molten metal cathode process for recovering chlorine and ammonia from ammonium chloride, reported in the preceding paper (Part I). A zinc chloride electrolyte, 100 A bench-scale electrolytic cell was found to work well. The electrolytic power consumption for 1 kg zinc chloride electrolysis was calculated to be 1120Whkg−1.
