2.3. Electrowinning cell geometry and boundary conditions for simulation Copper electrowinning is the process of winning copper from an electrolyte to solid form on a cathode by passing an electric current through the electrolyte to attract copper ions to the cathode. In this demonstration approach, a simple channel cell was selected.
