In the development of the electrolysis technique for iron, the cell-design step is crucial to ensure that the results obtained on smaller scale experiments are scaled-up to industrial size. Design criteria, based on the theorem of equipartitioned irreversibility, are proposed for the alkaline electrowinning process.

Electrowinning, also called electroextraction, is the electrodeposition of metals from their ores that have been put in solution via a process commonly referred to as leaching. Electrorefining uses a similar process to remove impurities from a metal. Both processes use electroplating on a large scale and are important techniques for the economical and straightforward purification of non ...

Electrowinning is defined as the cathodic deposition of metal, in this example copper, from a copper bearing solution by the passage of an electric current current using an insoluble anode. For copper the electrowinning reaction reaction is: CuSO4 + H2O ⇒ Cu + ½O2 + H2SO4 The overall reaction is the combination of two electrochemical half reactions. The cathodic reaction is: Cu++ + 2e ...
