Abstract

The characteristics of gas-diffusion electrodes catalysed with tungsten carbide have been investigated under the conditions of nickel electrowinning. It is shown that their use as anodes in this process leads to a considerable decrease of the energy consumption and the nickel produced is free of heavy metal impurities.
