Webinar: Mixed hydroxide precipitation: primary production and advanced manufacturing

PD Hours
Chemical and engineering aspects of the mixed hydroxide precipitation reactions and processes will be discussed in this webinar presentation.

About this event

Mixed nickel-cobalt hydroxide precipitate is an important intermediate product in primary nickel production.

The process was pioneered in Australia at the Cawse nickel refinery. A similar material is synthesized as a precursor needed for manufacturing Li-NMC batteries.

Please join our webinar presentation with expert speaker, Associate Professor James Vaughan as he discusses chemical and engineering aspects of the mixed hydroxide precipitation reactions and processes.
