Electronics Recovery

Precious metal recovery for high volume manufacturers

The presence of metal contamination can result in impurities but also effect performance.

An example of this is LCD. In one example, 1-100 ppm 23 different metals, Gp1 to transitions metals. Use of PEP-13 removes all metals to less than 0,1 ppm. Electroresistance of the material decreases by 300%.

What Makes PhosphonicS Unique?

PhosphonicS uses patented technology for attaching powerful ligands to a silica backbone. The ability to incorporate multiple chelating sites enables our silica products to outperform other solid supported products, at every concentration of precious metal in your stream.

Advantages of the Phos series

  • More powerful than standard solid adsorbents
  • Designed to only recover precious metals
  • Superior recovery performance

Advantages of silica as a support

  • Highly porous for optimised stream flow
  • Stable in both aqueous and organic media
  • Larger surface area for higher loading

Case Studies

Recovering precious metals in the electronics industry

Precious metals are widely used in the electronics industry due to their unique physical properties.

In particular, their ease of use in manufacturing operations involving soldering and bonding processes make them the materials of choice for high quality, high precision operations. In addition, the high abrasion and corrosion resistance of precious metals make them ideal for forming thin films and for use in semiconductor wafer manufacture.

To meet the ever growing global demand for high volumes of electronics components and to remain competitive, it is imperative that companies operating in this industry maximise their returns by recovering value from traces of precious metals in their waste streams.

PhosphonicS: With you all the way

We work closely with you to design the right solution for your problem, from initial testing to full scale manufacturing implementation. Dovetailing into your process development and operations, we follow a step by step analysis to deliver simple solutions to optimise value recovery from your low ppm concentration waste streams.
