The company has developed a system for the purpose of recycling e-scrap metals. Known as the Haber Electronic Scrap System (HESS), it is comprised of a number of sequential processes dealing with the extraction and recovery of precious metals. One of the main advantages of HESS is that the effluent and tailings, if any are produced, are environmentally friendly. The system is also extremely cost-effective and works quickly. When there is an economic advantage to doing so, HESS can also produce compounds. Although system parameters do change depending on the type of e-scrap being processed, when properly adjusted, HESS works successfully with even the most complex electronic boards.
The development work conducted thus far has resulted in two processing methods for precious metals extraction. Both of these processes are now being optimized. Based on evaluations that are also currently taking place, determinations will be made as to the type of e-scrap most suitable for quantity processing, and which of the two processing methods will be used. Regardless of the processing method, system protocol requires the electronic boards and components to be segregated as shown in photo 1. All components must then be ground -- as shown in photo 2 -- in order to then be processed. Photo 3 shows three of the many products that can be produced. The company goal is to initially carry out precious metals processing in its existing small USA facility. It will at the same time work on developing a versatile system suitable for installation in a larger full scale processing plant.
The HESS technology being developed is currently -- and may remain -- a trade secret. Based on what the company deems appropriate for disclosure, additional specific data regarding the system technology may be released.
