  abstract  = {The present work is concerned with sulfidation of Cu,
Zn and Ni containing plating wastewater with CaS. The sulfidation
experiments were carried out at a room temperature by adding solid
CaS to simulated metal solution containing either single-metal of Ni,
Zn and Cu, or Ni-Zn-Cu mixture. At first, the experiments were
conducted without pH adjustment and it was found that the complete
sulfidation of Zn and Ni was achieved at an equimolar ratio of CaS to a
particular metal. However, in the case of Cu, a complete copper
sulfidation was achieved at CaS to Cu molar ratio of about 2. In the
case of the selective sulfidation, a simulated plating solution
containing Cu, Zn and Ni at the concentration of 100 mg/dm3 was
treated with CaS under various pH conditions. As a result, selective
precipitation of metal sulfides was achieved by a sulfidation treatment
at different pH values. Further, the precipitation agents of NaOH,
Na2S and CaS were compared in terms of the average specific
filtration resistance and compressibility coefficients of metal sulfide
slurry. Consequently, based on the lowest filtration parameters of the
produced metal sulfides, it was concluded that CaS was the most
effective precipitation agent for separation and recovery of Cu, Zn and
Ni.},
