Kumari, Sarita and Agrawal, A and Bagchi , D and Kumar, Vinay and Pandey, B D (2005) Producing Copper Powder from Copper Bleed Solution by Hydrogen Reduction.

This paper deals with the bench scale investigation on the hydrogen reduction of a highly acidic copper bleed solution.(CBS), generated in an Indian copper smelter, to produce highly pure copper powder. A titanium-lined autoclave of 1 L capacity was used for this study. After the optimization of the parameters for the recovery of copper powder, hydrogen reduction of copper was done in a larger autoclave to validate the results.
