Magpie Polymers - metal removal, precious metal recovery
Magpie Polymers provides an innovative and patented filtration technology for the selective removal of transition metals from industrial waste or process water.
Magpie's technology gives a high-performance and simple to apply solution to the increasing problem of metals in water. It is best suited for toxic metal removal and recovery of precious metal.
The company, a spin-off from the French Institute Ecole Polytechnique, produces different patented polymers to capture a large number of metals including cobalt, cadmium, gold or even uranium, leaving less than a milligram of metal per cubic meter of water. Magpie also recovers the captured metals, specifically the increasingly scarce and valuable metals.
