We recycle precious metals more effectively
instrAction resins with MetCap® technology are capable of binding even the smallest traces of precious metals in aqueous or organic solvents and allow an economic recovery of valuable elements.
Precious metals and rare earths are indispensable for modern industrial society. They are used in electronic devices, catalysts or in industrial processes. Precious metals and rare earths are usually key elements for the production or operation of vital components.
At the same time, any disruption to the supply chain of these metals or fluctuations in the world market price make sensible cost calculations impossible. In contrast, large quantities of these substances are disposed of without recycling, for lack of effective recovery systems or for cost reasons.
instrAction resins offer a cheap way out and a real economic advantage, because even in the presence of disturbing impurities, the desired metals can be selectively bound and removed from the waste. The metals can be easily extracted from the resin and thus recovered. The resins can in turn be regenerated with simple means and prepared for reuse.
Thus, resins with MetCap® technology as well as precious metals and rare earths can be used again and again and fed to a circular economy.
