Chromium has 2 Types of projects:


1. Environmentally related

•  Cr(VI) generation during sample preparation
•  Cr(VI) generation during production steps
•  Cr(VI) generation during off-gas combustion
•  Cr(VI) association with cations in bag filter dust
•  Optimization of aqueous Cr(VI) reduction during FeCr recovery out of slag
•  Aqueous electrochemical reduction of Cr(VI) as an alternative to chemical reduction


2. Process related

•  Development of alternative chromite pre- reduction processes, including catalytic reduction
•  Beneficiation of chrome ore by alterning the Cr:Fe ratio
•  Development of an alternative analytical method to determine chromite pre-reduction
•  Recovery of Cr-units out of ferrrochrome slag and UG2 waste
