Businesses today are under constant pressure to increase profitability and reduce costs while minimizing waste and promoting closed-loop sustainability. To meet these challenges, emew’s combination of purpose built process solutions coupled with proven technology enable valuable metals such as Copper, Silver, Gold, Nickel, and Cobalt to be recovered from complex, mixed-metal residues, sludges, slags, oxides, scrap, e-waste, spent Li-ion batteries, and more.
By diverting waste from landfill and recovering the valuable metals therein, growth is achieved through sustainable revenue streams that promote circular economies and reduce environmental impact. Since metals are endlessly recyclable, value can be extracted from recycled electronic scrap, secondary industrial materials, and a variety of other waste streams.
The green energy revolution is also putting increased demand on raw materials used in Lithium-Ion batteries such as Cobalt and Nickel. Meanwhile, end users of these green products are also demanding that the metals and raw materials used to manufacture them are ethically produced, traceable and have low carbon footprints. Sustainable sources of Nickel and Cobalt even command a premium price over conventionally produced metals, and Lithium-Ion battery recycling will help meet the demand well into the future.
High purity Nickel and Cobalt can be recovered from a wide variety of secondary and recycled sources using emew technologies. From spent Lithium-Ion batteries, to complex, mixed-metal slags and residues, emew recovers high purity, sustainable and traceable Nickel and Cobalt. Depending on the feed material, the process can involve dismantling, crushing, grinding, pre-treatment, leaching, purification and electrowinning.
Closed-loop sustainability is driving business strategy at every stage of the product lifecycle. If you are looking for a clean technology to produce sustainable and traceable Nickel and Cobalt with low carbon footprint for green energy applications, turn to emew.
