Process intensification by ultrasound cavitation
Researchers in Engineering Acoustics and Process Metallurgy at Luleå University of Technology are using ultrasonic cavitation to streamline and speed up the leaching process in the mining industry. Leaching is a hydrometallurgical technique that converts metals or minerals into soluble salts in aqueous media.
Researchers in Engineering Acoustics at Luleå University of Technology are working to reduce the energy consumption in the production of paper. With the help of ultrasound the process can become more energy efficient and increase the quality of the paper produced.
