Rising costs of power forecast for the future emphasis the need for the effective energy saving measures in the electrolytic extraction of metals, Introduction of newer anode materials in the electrolytic cells avoid problems like high energy consumption and anode corrosion associated with the conventional lead anodes. A new type of catalytic anode, known as activated lead electrode, has been investigated for its possible application in the electrolytic recovery of metals from their aqueous solutions. The anode consists of a lead substrate and an etectrocatalyst like IrO2 supported on the titanium sponge particles. Voltage saving anodic stability, ability to tolerate the chloride impurity in the electrolyte and catalyst poisoning, associated with the new anode system, have been examined
