Mining for silver and copper has severe negative impacts on the environment.

Recycling silver and copper for reuse moves us towards a more circular economy.

Recycling copper saves up to 85% of the energy used in primary copper production and reduces CO2 emissions by 65%. (Bureau of International Recycling) And the carbon emissions from recycling silver are one-third those from silver mining. (Recycling Today)

The current industry standard of smelting to recycle silver plated scrap has its own environmental issues.

We offer the only sustainable alternative to smelting. Our patented PM-STRIP process is non-cyanide and domestic. Work with us to achieve your ESG goals and accelerate the transition to a circular economy.

Highly energy intensive - large furnaces operating at >2000⁰F Extremely low energy use - negligible carbon footprint
Requires special treatment of fumes Minimal fumes are scrubbed in the system
Produces toxic slag that must be contained and treated No toxic discharges
Requires special permitting and monitoring No extraordinary permits or monitoring required
Remoteness from sources means long distance shipping and logistics costs Can be sited logistically near scrap suppliers to minimize shipping costs and fuel consumption
