Economical, Sustainable & Scalable Copper Recovery For PCB Manufacturing

Optimizing PCB Manufacturing Through Automated and Waste-Free Pure Copper Recovery for Sale or Reuse

How it Works

Cost-Effective Copper, Tin & Silver Recovery

ElectraMet’s scalable solution provides economical copper recovery for rinse bath and other waste streams for all PCB fabricators. The automated process reduces labor while increasing the revenue generated from the recovered metal to enable circularity and increase your sustainability profile.

Low & Zero-Discharge (ZLD)

Tightening regulatory pressure has accelerated the industry towards low and zero-discharge operation (ZLD). A critical step in maintaining ZLD is the efficient removal of dissolved metals, including copper, without generating additional waste. 

Streamlined Waste Reduction

Expectations for sustainable manufacturing are on the rise. ElectraMet’s customers have realized significant reductions in scope 3 GHG emissions due to elimination of hauling and more efficient copper recovery. Increased revenue from the recovered copper easily offset treatment costs. 

The ElectraMet Solution

ElectraMet offers an innovative and modular solution to address the evolving challenges for PCB manufacturing. ElectraMet’s automated system selectively removes and recovers specific metals from spent etchant and rinse bath waste. This cutting-edge technology can be integrated seamlessly into existing waste treatment processes, offering several key advantages:

Automated Process

Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD)

ElectraMet empowers ZLD by enabling 100% water recovery. Metal is removed without generating byproducts that contaminate the water.

Impurity Removal (2)

Spent Etchant Metal Recovery

ElectraMet's customers have achieved effective copper and tin recovery from their lines, yielding up to 85% LME on recovered metals.

Discharge Compliance

Automation & Assurance

Automation minimizes labor and ensures consistent, trouble-free operations to optimize recovery revenue, ensure compliance, and enable reuse.

Printed Circuit Board FAQs

ElectraMet allows for 100% water recovery. Our technology removes targeted metals and recovers based on economics. With the only byproducts being oxygen and protons, there is no secondary treatment required. 

ElectraMet technology can target metals other than copper. ElectraMet customers have successfully recovered copper, silver, tin, nickel, and gold. 

Chelators, complexing agents, pH, and corrosion inhibitors may have an impact on removal efficiency depending on the target metal. Contact us today to learn more.
