Precious Metal Recovery - recover a very high % of the metal value;
Electronic Chemicals - Precious Metals and Li, Na, K. Mg, Ca, Fe, Cu etc to <1 ppm or lower
Performance and Fine Chemicals - cost-effective removal of metals and organic impurities
Precious Metal Recovery
Recovery of Precious Metal & Gold from Product, Process and Waste streams
Recovery of Precious Metal & Gold from product, process and waste streams
Very high metal recovery and selective for the target metal
Cost-effective and simple processes to implement with low environmental impact; implementation with significant commercial, operational and environmental benefits and on site operation.
Hydroformylation - Rhodium - For production of acids, aldehydes and alcohols
Cost effective processes, very high metal recovered, very low residual metal content
Hydrosilylation - Platinum - silanes and silicones - >95% Platinum recovery achievable
C-C (Suzuki) & C-N (Buchwald-Hartwig) coupling - Palladium & Rhodium >99% metal recovered
Hydrogenations - Pd, Pt, Ru, Rh recovered from product, process, waste streams & catalyst washing
Oxidations, Rearrangements, Protection/De-protection Pd and Pt >98% recovery

Mining and Refining
Selective Recovery of;
Precious Metals from mining and refining Precious Metals and Gold
Low ppm Precious Metals in the presence of high concentration other metals
Low ppm Gold, Palladium and Platinum from Gold processes streams
Platinum and Palladium from a Silver Refining Solution in nitric acid
Precious Metals from Nickel/Copper mining and refining streams
separation of Copper from Gold streams
Stricter enforcement and lower regulatory residual levels require more effective Scavengers.
Si-Novation Smart Novel Technology meets these and future regulatory lower levels.
Scavenger Solutions are available for the metals highlighted in blue in the Periodic Table.
Notable - Scavengers for Ni, Cu, Cr and Fe achieving <0.1 ppm
