5 years long research resulted with patent application in 2016.
The approach of BiotaTec can be adapted for any organics and metallic complexes containing ore / mining waste that are considered not valuable for processing with less profitable traditional technologies or common bioleaching at acidic conditions. Through generation of methane gas as energy the whole process would be more cost-efficient, by breaking up the organic complexes more valuable metals would be extracted and the solid waste of would be more environmentally friendly.
New bioleaching tests with our team of Hungry Miners have started with samples of other shales and waste electronic equipment.
