Mineral Process Optimisation
Insights from Graphite+Anodes and Cathodes 2018
The ever-growing battery market has resulted in an increased demand for battery materials, providing the mineral processing industry a unique opportunity to increase production. Here are some key insights to consider before attempting to enter the battery market.
Optimising slurry transport
Slurry transport is a complex process involving multiple phenomena, with optimisation requiring deep understanding and clever solutions. By proactively addressing operational risks, you can optimise your processes for more effective slurry transport, resulting in reduced energy consumption and increased productivity.
Complete value recovery
Many titano-magnetite ore producers risk economic instability by focusing operations on recovery of only one core mineral. Developing new processes for complete value recovery can increase the viability and longevity of an operation.
Optimising electrowinning operations
Increased production is necessary to meet demands for base metals. Optimising electrowinning operations is one way to improve production and decrease risk to business.
You can work with CSIRO
There are many ways you can use CSIRO for your R&D. And it's not as hard as you may think. Read about the ways you can engage with us to invigorate and innovate your business.
Overcoming inefficiencies in flash smelting
Flash smelters could now be at risk of decreased throughput, thanks to the rising complexity of feedstock. Discover how computer modelling can help you reduce inefficiency.
Fluid flow in minerals processing
Are you missing the opportunity to improve fluid flow in minerals processing? Many organisations suffer low throughput on their fluid flow minerals processing. Find out how you can optimise.
Maximising value from waste materials
Waste accompanies mineral processing and product production.Extracting value from waste products, through recycling, re-processing and re-purposing, enables companies to manage waste production and stockpiling. Our high temperature modelling can help you achieve sustainable approaches to waste management and value recovery.
Heat transfer modelling
As high-quality ores are depleted, more metal smelters are having to smelt less desirable materials. Find out how you can optimise your smelting operations when using complex ores with CSIRO’s Heat Transfer Modelling.
