In British Columbia, a new chemical process is being developed and refined to allow the mining industry to extract critical minerals with minimal environmental impact. pH7 Technologies, a Vancouver-based company, has created a proprietary closed-loop process using advanced chemistry to extract and refine critical metals in an efficient and cost-effective way. The metal alloys produced by pH7 include platinum group metals, copper, and tin.

The B.C. Minister of Energy, Mines and Low-Carbon Innovation Josie Osborne stated that pH7’s near net-zero environmental impact in the extraction of critical metals and minerals demonstrates the kind of innovative thinking that can transform mining around the world. pH7 Technologies founder and CEO Mohammad Doostmohammadi expressed his commitment to a clean, green future through their technology. The company aims to bring a clean-tech solution to scale the extraction of metals, making existing processes more sustainable and cost-effective.

pH7 will conduct a pilot project using $850,000 from the province’s ICE Fund to process 5,000 kilograms of raw materials per day into 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 reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and promote clean, renewable energy technologies.
