In search for a  new innovative bioleaching technology for different ores and type of waste.

Our  R&D company formerly known as BiotaP wa
s created in July 2007  with  main focus at  developing  environment  monitoring tools
based on metagenomics. For 10 years our ISO 17025 accredited laboratory performed DNA analysis of microorganisms extracted from environmental and medical samples mainly for scientific institutions home and abroad.

As we fell in love with micro-organisms, we decided to start investigate their world further. In 2010 we began looking for the hungriest little miners among  the micro-organisms with the aim to hire them to the workforce in  new innovative bioleaching technology for different ores and type of waste. 

First tests run with local Dictyonema Argillite were promising, and the development of 2 step technology comprising both anaerobic and aerobic bioleaching in stirred tanks continued, resulting with patent application in 2016.

As greedy leaders we are currently looking for other raw materials suitable for our tiny miners army. R&D is going on with amending the technology for e-waste and for old lubricating oils. preliminary tests show that the BiotaMet technology is suitable for processing:
- argillite
- WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment; often called as e-waste)
black shales & oil shales
- phosphate rocks
- other metals/organics containing ores.
