Abstract

In this study, a summary of the processes performed on the SPL for recycling, reduction in toxicity and treatment were examined on an industrial and laboratory scale. In writing this research, an attempt has been made to address the useful processes that have taken place in this field. Spent pot lining or SPL is a type of solid waste that is produced in the aluminum production process. After 3 to 8 years, the cathode blocks become problematic and can no longer be used, and need to be replaced due to adverse effects on cell function. SPL is known to be a hazardous waste to nature due to its fluoride and cyanide content. Research has shown that SPL ingredients have destructive and very dangerous effects on human DNA, which is why they are so important to maintain and recycle.
