revolutionary solvent extraction technology
to address various challenges related to rare
Rare metals are essential for high-tech industries. However, the
supply becomes increasingly unstable with higher reliance on imported inputs.
We help solve these rare metal issues with our innovative solvent extraction technology Emulsion Flow.
Solvent extraction is one of the methods for separating and
purifying substances. It selectively extracts only the target
components by utilizing the distribution of substances between
immiscible liquid phases.
The technology is for recovering rare metals with high purity at low cost, and to enable horizontal recycling that allows the recovered rare metals to be directly reused in high-tech industries. In particular, we commercialize and implement the recycling of rare metals for social use such as cobalt, nickel, and lithium contained in lithium-ion batteries.
In addition to rare metal recycling, we propose emulsion flow processes to apply as a solution to customer issues related to processes including separation and refinement, recovery of valuable components, and organic synthesis in various industries such as metal smelting, chemistry and biotechnology. We offer a one-stop solution from designing, manufacturing, installation, licensing technologies, and operation of equipment and plants for this purpose.
