In respect of Cu and nickel smelting, CINF has longtime and deep technological buildup and has developed or mastered the smelting technologies such as oxygenenriched sideblown molten bath Cu and Ni smelting technology, ISA or Ausmelt technology, lowgrade Cu oxide heap leachingextractionelectrowinning and comprehensive recovery of reclaimed copper and Cubearing material, etc. The oxygenenriched sideblown molten bath Cu and Ni smelting technology is developed by CINF, which is awarded with Innovation Prize in Chinese Patent Annual Meeting. CINF is awarded by China Nonferrous Metals Industrial Association with secondclass prize for the “Technological Development and Industrial Application of Oxygenenriched Sideblown Molten Bath CuNi Smelting Technology”. The patent for invention of oxygenenriched sideblown molten bath Cu and Ni smelting technology is identified as the upgraded key patent with advanced technoeconomic indicators. In terms of smelting of CuNi complex ore by oxygenenriched sideblown molten bath smelting, the overall technical level is up to the international advanced level.
Oxygenenriched sideblown molten bath CuNi smelting technology (known as CSCCu, Ni).
