Metal Finishing White Paper

ElectraMet proves to reduce chemical treatment costs, improve the consistency of meeting discharge compliance for metal finishers, and demonstrates the ability to recover valuable resources like copper.

Project Background

ElectraMet and three clients worked together to evaluate the ElectraMet system, a chemical-free metals separation process, for metals removal from wastewater. For these clients, we demonstrated:

  • ElectraMet removal rates up to 99% for dissolved copper and hexavalent chromium.
  • The ability to recover trace copper from complex streams as a copper sheet.
  • A fully automated and chemical-free process to meet discharge compliance.
