About

Circular Materials has developed a patent-pending process able to quantitatively remove and recover heavy metals from industrial wastewaters in the form of powders by means of a sustainable and environmentally friendly precipitation process in supercritical water. The process does not produce any toxic sludge destined to landfills as special waste, steeply reducing the wastewater treatment costs. In addition, it recovers valuable metals to be reintroduced in the industrial process or sold as secondary raw materials. The process has been validated at pilot scale for recovering Chromium, Zinc, Nickel, Palladium, Gold, Platinum and Ruthenium with percentage in the range of 98.4 – 99.9%.
