Navigating Copper Discharge Regulations for Medical Manufacturers
ElectraMet successfully implemented its modular and automated copper capture and recovery solution for a medical device manufacturing facility facing challenges in wastewater treatment and compliance. The facility had to increase production volume while meeting a lower copper discharge limit.
Sustainable Hexavalent Chromium Reduction from Steel Mill
This document describes how ElectraMet's automated electrochemical solution helped a large steel mill selectively convert elevated Cr(VI) levels in their wastewater to Cr(III), preventing negative environmental impacts, and allowing for downstream removal via caustic precipitation.
Silver Capture and Recovery from Microelectronics Wastewater
ElectraMet's automated electrochemical process selectively removed and recovered silver from a printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer's wastewater stream. This increased the value of recycled silver by $343/kg, eliminated ion-exchange resin replacement, and allowed for reallocation of 1/2 FTE to the production site.
Copper Capture & Recovery from Microelectronics Wastewater
Microelectronics manufacturing uses diverse raw materials, chemicals, and processes. As part of the production finishing process, chemistries diluted with deionized water (DI) are used to remove particles, residues, metallic impurities, and organic contamination from the sensitive components.
Purification of Black Mass for Re-Use in Battery Grade Materials
Removal of impurities from black mass leachate is a complicated part of the EV battery recycling process. Traditional treatment methods such as chemical addition or ion exchange are inefficient. ElectraMet’s automated solution removes targeted metals and impurities.
