A new method to make metal using electricity, both budget and environment friendly

    The MIT researchers were trying to develop a new battery, but it didn’t work out that way. Instead, thanks to an unexpected finding in their lab tests, what they discovered was a whole new way of producing the metal antimony — and potentially a new way of smelting other metals, as well.
    The discovery could lead to metal-production systems that are much less expensive and that virtually eliminate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with most traditional metal smelting. Although antimony itself is not a widely used metal, the same principles may also be applied to producing much more abundant and economically important metals such as copper and nickel, the researchers say.

    On 1970 I was involved in a project extracting Iron from coal and other metallic impurity , At the same time lignite coal was less pollutant. So I am not surprised producing metals without smelting.
