This work concerns a three-step process for the recovery of vanadium from heavy oil and Orimulsion combustion fly ashes. This consisted of acid leaching, oxidation and precipitation of the vanadium pentoxide, followed by washing of the precipitate. Preliminary tests were conducted to investigate the effect of some operating parameters for the various steps of the process. After these preliminary tests, the recovery of vanadium from the fly ash samples was performed on a laboratory scale and the overall yield of the process was determined. By washing the precipitate, it was possible to reduce the concentration of the impurities and to allow its use for the production of ferrovanadium alloys.
