Innovative technology created to minimize mining’s environmental footprint

Vancouver-Based pH7 Technologies Develops Revolutionary Chemical Process for Mining Industry with Minimal Environmental Impact

A new chemical process is being developed in British Columbia to allow the mining industry to extract critical minerals with minimal environmental impact. Vancouver-based pH7 Technologies has created a closed-loop process using advanced chemistry to extract and refine critical metals. The metal alloys produced by pH7, including platinum group metals, copper, and tin, are then refined by industrial customers.

PH7 will use $850,000 from the ICE Fund to conduct a pilot project processing 5,000 kilograms of raw materials per day, resulting in approximately 2,500 kilograms of extracted platinum group metals per year. The ICE Fund, established in 2007, supports B.C.’s clean-energy sector by funding projects that promote clean, renewable energy technologies and reduce fossil fuel consumption to help preserve the environment.

British Columbia Minister of Energy, Mines and Low-Carbon Innovation Josie Osborne praised pH7 for their near net-zero environmental impact in extracting critical metals. pH7 founder and CEO Mohammad Doostmohammadi expressed optimism about the potential for growth and commercialization of their technology with the support of the Province’s ICE Fund. The company aims to scale up its extraction process while maintaining its sustainability and cost-effectiveness to meet the growing demand for critical minerals in a clean tech future.
