Microwave heating technology, as a new green metallurgical method, is the core technology
used in metallurgical engineering. Based on a brief overview of the principle of microwave technology
heating and its application in the metallurgical industry, this paper summarizes the latest research progress
and development status of the current microwave heating technology in the hydrometallurgy
leaching process and the trend of the application of microwave heating technology in metallurgy. A detailed
classification and discussion on the leaching process of common metals were made. The purpose
is to further improve the application level of the technology and provide technical support for the improvement
of the market position of China’s metallurgical industry. Finally, the problems that need to
be urgently solved in the hydrometallurgy of microwave-assisted leaching are further discussed and
prospects and suggestions are also discussed.
Keywords: Microwave-assisted, leaching, microwave heating, hydrometallurgy, reviews, metals.
