During commissioning, EnviroLeach has also successfully implemented improved mechanical processes and systems, which enable the treatment of complete information technology components, such as set-top boxes, modems, power supplies, switches and routers.

The company has also completed the installation of a new patent-pending process for the enhanced recovery of chemical ingredients and rinse water treatment. This newly developed process not only optimizes economics, it also ensures a sustained zero water effluent operation.

EnviroLeach said its management continues to focus on establishing additional key partnerships for both high-value E-waste feedstock and joint ventures worldwide. Over the last eight weeks, management has generated measurable interest from several domestic and international original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and E-waste recyclers.

“We are excited to enter the revenue stage of our operations and the positive response from global electronics manufacturers, OEMs and recyclers is very encouraging,” said EnviroLeach CEO Duane Nelson.

“We are in a unique situation within a rapidly expanding and under-developed sector. The results of our extensive commercial market analysis demonstrate a vast emerging global market now estimated to exceed 110 million tonnes annually by 2026. OEM’s and E-waste recyclers worldwide are increasingly seeking economic and sustainable E-waste processing solutions.” 

Nelson noted that EnviroLeach’s “proprietary, patent-pending technology suite offers the only true cost-effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable solution. Our team’s priorities are to secure immediate full capacity feedstock contracts for our initial plant and determine the location and capacity of our next facility.”

Mineworx CEO Greg Pendura called the commissioning of  EnviroCircuit facility “a significant milestone” that positions the company at the forefront of commercially viable and environmentally friendly E-waste recycling.
