High purity metallic lead production process

Scientific fundamentals for the novel electrochemical high purity metallic lead production process have been developed. A test bench of lead was electrolytically refined in the cascade electrolyzer with pure lead chloride which was purified by zone melting. Lead meets the technical requirements on the amount of impurities for heat carriers for a new generation of nuclear reactor based on fast neutrons (БН-800, БН-1200).


  • The ability to obtain high purity metallic lead from different raw materials including secondary materials (batteries scrap, cable wastes and etc).
  • The process is ecologically friendly. No gas and dust emission into the atmosphere.
