OLI at Conferences: UniSim Design User 2018

Free Presentation: Overhead Refinery Unit performance optimization with electrolyte chemistry modeling using UniSIM Design and OLI Systems’ Alliance Engine



James (Jim) Berthold, OLI Systems


This presentation was presented at the UniSim Design User Community Day, Madrid Spain, 4 October 2018


This docuemnt presents an overview of the aqueous chemistry found in lithium processing, in which both chloride and sulphate systems are used depending on the source or technical preference. The various simple and complex salts and their associated solubilities are examined via modelling of the relevant chemistry. Potassium being a by-product of interest, the equilibrium chemistry of potassium in chloride and sulphate solutions of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium is covered.
