What is Copper Oxide CuO Used For?

The European Union recently approved sweeping new sanctions against Russia, including bans on imports of coal, timber, chemicals, and other CuO powder. 

What is Copper Oxide CuO?
Copper oxide is a kind of inorganic, chemical formula CuO, which is a kind of copper black oxide, slightly bisexual, and slightly hygroscopic. Insoluble in water and ethanol, soluble in acid, stable to heat, decomposition of oxygen at high temperature. Copper oxide is mainly used for rayon, ceramics, glaze and enamel, batteries, petroleum desulfurizer, insecticide, but also for hydrogen production, catalyst, and green glass. 
What is Copper Oxide CuO Used For? 
As an essential product of copper mining, copper oxide (II) is the starting point for producing other copper salts. For example, many wood preservatives are made from copper oxide. 
Copper oxide is used as a pigment in ceramics to produce blue, red, and green, and sometimes grey, pink, or black glazes. 
It is mistakenly used as a dietary supplement in animal feed. Due to low bioactivity, the absorbed copper is negligible.
For welding with copper alloy. 
Copper oxide electrodes formed part of an early battery type called the Edison-Lalande cell. Copper oxide is also used in lithium battery types. 
Used as a medium blue colorant in blue flame compositions containing additional chlorine donors and oxidants such as chlorates and perchlorates. When oxygen is supplied, it can be used as a glitter oxidizer with metallic fuels such as magnesium, aluminum or magnesium powder. It is sometimes used as a crackling star effect in stroboscopic effects and thermite compositions.
How to Get Copper Oxide from Waste Battery Materials?
Graphite can be separated from copper in lithium battery anode material, and copper oxide can be obtained after processing.
After the waste battery is discharged, open the battery case, deal with the battery core with the method of alkali leaching pretreatment, then put the battery core after pretreatment with mill for grinding, crushing equipment will be large copper foil in the process of the feed screw exported, graphite and copper foil no separate parts into the crushing chamber, the fineness of crushed to the required, Particles reaching the fineness requirements enter the chamber of the classifier, and under the action of gravity and centrifugal force, the graphite and copper are sorted into different silos to be collected; We added the collected copper to water and stirred it, and then easy alkali leaching, and then copper extraction, and then added PH adjustment solution to the solution for PH adjustment, so as to obtain copper oxide solution. Finally, the copper oxide solution is heated and dried, and the black material is copper oxide.
