Revolutionary Chemistry for Metals Recovery in Recycling and Mining Industries

RETHINK NATURAL RESOURCES

Argo is the commercialisation partner of the University of Leicester, bringing to market a revolutionary chemistry and process to e-waste, mined ore concentrate and other high value feedstock.


This is a viable alternative to traditional pyrometallurgical and potentially toxic hydrometallurgical processes, and challenges the status quo of effectiveness and efficiency.

IT’S THE RIGHT TIME TO RETHINK THE PROCESSES IN OUR INDUSTRY

Advancement in Deep Eutectic Solvents led to focus on improving metals recovery in the recycling and mining sectors

Deep Eutectic Solvents, a group of environmentally benign, non-aqueous solvents, have a track record of replacing toxic chemicals to target a variety of valuable metals

These liquids have demonstrated significant results in targeting gold, PGMs and other high value metals in e-waste and other feedstocks

REDEFINING REFRACTORY


Unlocking Lost Value From Low Metal Recovery.
Making The Impossible Possible

We have significant experience in dissolving precious and base metals without roasting ores or feedstock or the use of chemically toxic methods –

In other words without heat, without cyanide, without acid, and without water.

Imagine the possibility – and the value – of cyanide-free gold

20 years of work with industry is the scientific foundation for rethinking the metals-recovery process.
