AbstractThe transport of cobalt(II) from acidic sulphate solutions through PEHFSD was investigated using the extractant DP-8R in Exxsol D100. The acidic feed solution containing Co(II) was passed through the tube side, and pseudo-emulsions of DP-8R/Exxsol D100 and sulphuric acid was passed through the shell side in counter-current mode, using a single microporous hydrophobic polypropylene hollow fiber contactor for extraction and stripping. In PEHFSD the aqueous strip (sulphuric acid) solution was dispersed in the organic membrane solution in a reservoir tank with an impeller stirrer to form a strip dispersion. This pseudo-emulsion phase is circulated from the tank to the membrane module to provide a constant supply of the carrier solution to the membrane micropores. Several hydrodynamic and chemical parameters, such as variation in feed pH (3–7), cobalt concentration in feed (0.17–1.7 10 3 M), carrier concentration (0.16–1.28 M), etc., were investigated. Mass transfer modelling was performed and the validity of the model was evaluated with experimental data. Moreover, the system was applied in the cobalt purification of synthetic lithium solutions derived from the processing of rechargeable batteries, with cobalt/lithium separation factor values around 25.
