Abstract

This paper deals with an experimental study of copper deposition in fluidized bed electrodes from acidified aqueous solutions containing copper. Overpotential distributions are determined and the amount of copper deposited at various levels within the electrodes is also measured. Experiments with long duration times allow the variations of current efficiency for recovery to be obtained as a function of current density and fixed bed thickness. These variations could be explained by the existence of dissolution zones within the electrodes.
