Abstract

At present gallium is mainly produced in processing alumina containing raw material. Electrochemical extraction method was developed for electrodeposition of gallium from aluminate-alkaline solution on metallic gallium covered surface. Electrolyzer with a rotated gallium covered cathode was developed, which works in batch and continuous mode.
