We offer a family of customizable, highly selective biochemical reagents to mining companies who want to improve the efficiency and environmental profile of their mineral processing operations
Drop-in biochemical reagents with standard recovery systems
ecomine has developed a technology platform that enables us to produce novel biochemical reagents with high mineral-binding affinities. The reagents can be dropped into existing mineral processing circuits or utilized to recover residual value from waste streams, or be used in environmental remediation applications.
Low cost production, renewable and environmentally benign
Our reagents are produced using low-cost, predictable and abundant feedstocks.
Rapid discovery, development and deployment cycles
Much like modern drug discovery, we use digital search tools to explore a vast, virtual biochemical space to discover candidate material and metal-ion binders. We then empirically evaluate these candidates using a rapid prototyping circuit, before developing fully fledged products. The development cycle is quick: 2 weeks to 4 months.
We are building our company and our products with the world’s biggest commodity markets in mind; copper, nickel, gold, lithium and rare earth minerals in terms of infrastructure, we are compatible with industry standard.
