Abstract/Summary The chemistries of industrial pyrometallurgical non-ferrous smelting and recycling processes are becoming increasingly complex. Optimisation of process conditions, charge composition, temperature, oxygen partial pressure, and partitioning of minor elements between phases and different process streams require accurate description of phase equilibria and thermodynamics which are the focus of the present research. The experiments involve high temperature equilibration in controlled gas atmospheres, rapid quenching and direct measurement of equilibrium phase compositions with quantitative microanalytical techniques including electron probe X-ray microanalysis and Laser Ablation ICP-MS. The thermodynamic modelling is undertaken using computer package FactSage with the quasi-chemical model for the liquid slag phase and other advanced models. Experimental and modelling studies are combined into an integrated research program focused on the major elements Cu-Pb-Fe-O-Si-S system, slagging Al, Ca, Mg and other minor elements. The ongoing development of the research methodologies has resulted in significant advances in research capabilities. Examples of applications are given.
