Rhodium recovery and refining process.

Rhodium, a rare and expensive precious metal, occupies an irreplaceable position in many industrial applications due to its excellent chemical stability and catalytic properties. The growing demand for rhodium, from vehicle exhaust purifiers to the production of fine chemicals, makes rhodium recovery and refining particularly important.

Rhodium recovery and refining process
Collect scrap
The first step in rhodium recovery is to collect rhodium-containing waste. These wastes mainly come from by-products of industrial processes, discarded catalysts, electronic waste, etc. An effective collection system is the basis to ensure the efficiency and economy of rhodium recovery.

The collected waste needs to be pre-treated, including sorting, cleaning and crushing, to facilitate subsequent chemical treatment. The purpose of pretreatment is to remove impurities and non-target materials and improve recovery.

Chemical treatment
Chemical treatment is the core step in the rhodium recovery process, which involves the chemical reaction that separates rhodium from other substances. Common methods include solvent extraction, ion exchange and chemical precipitation. Through this step, rhodium and other precious metals such as palladium and platinum can be effectively separated from the waste.

The rhodium after separation also contains a small amount of impurities, which need to be further purified by refining. The refining process usually involves melting or chemical refining techniques with the goal of producing a high purity rhodium metal or compound.

Finished product preparation
After refining, the pure rhodium is prepared into the form required by the user, such as powder, sponge or strips. These finished products will be supplied to downstream users for the manufacture of catalysts, electronic devices, etc.
