In fact, extracting pure calcium via electrolysis, the developed process is clean and reduces unwanted wastage. However, in terms of mining its ore, there are a few issues, environmentally in particular. In terms of quarrying limestone (an ore of a calcium), the waste product and results of pollution need to be taken into account.
The aim of this study was to recover calcium carbonate which was used after treatment of acid mine water from the sludge. Flotation was selected as a feasible technique to recover the CaCO. 3. from the waste sludge. Experimental. Sodium oleate and sunlight dish liquid were used as collectors for calcium carbonate in this study.
