A purely hydrometallurgical approach for selective metals recovery
The process takes metal-rich mining concentrates or recycled battery materials and converts them into premium value-added battery materials. Lab tests exceed technical specifications of cathode producers in Asia.
SGS Canada (Lakefield) is designing and building a Re-2Ox pilot plant. The Company recently expanded testing to include recovery of rubidium, an alkaline metal, obtained from a local deposit and also the recovery and metal recycling from lithium-ion, nickel-hydroxide and nickel cadmium batteries to capture valuable materials and divert spent batteries from landfills.
