We develop and commercialize proprietary technologies focused primarily on recycling gold, silver, and other precious metals ("PM") from scrap materials and industrial by-products. Our technologies are cheaper, faster, and more sustainable than the conventional PM recovery methods they replace. Our goal is to build a robust portfolio of superior PM recycling technologies for a wide range of materials across multiple industries. We are headquartered in Beverly, Massachusetts with an R&D laboratory in Laval, Quebec.
We currently market a suite of patent pending technologies to recycle PM plated on base metal substrates. These technologies, which we refer to collectively as “PM-STRIP™”, are chemical or electrochemical in various applications and include “S-PURE™“ for the recovery of pure silver metal from solution.
We also offer two technologies not directed to PM recovery (i) "TF1" to recover integrated circuits ("chips") from populated circuit boards, and (ii) "PbL2" to recycle lead and glass from cathode ray tubes ("CRT"s) found in old TVs and computer monitors.
Our laboratory in Laval, Quebec (Montreal) has 2,800 square feet of research and office space and is located in a building devoted exclusively to R&D on the campus of INRS-IAF Research Institute. INRS is one of Canada's top universities in terms of research intensity. Our neighbors include R&D facilities of some of the world's most significant pharmaceutical and chemical companies, e.g., GSK, Sanofi, Merck, Roche, and Novartis. Our lab is currently equipped with advanced research and analytical equipment, including a Spectroscout XRF analyzer and a Spectro ARCOS EOP ICP (inductively coupled plasma) analyzer that we use for measuring the precious metal content of solids and liquids. We also have available to us a Hitachi Scanning Electron Microscope TM3000, a Retsch planetary ball mill, and a Retsch SM300 grinder. We are planning to acquire additional specialized equipment and lab technicians in 2015 to expand and accelerate our R&D activities.
