AQUAREFINING

INCREASE LEAD PRODUCTION
WITHOUT INCREASING EMISSIONS

Aqua Metals is reinventing lead recycling with its patented and patent-pending AquaRefining technology. These modular systems reduce environmental impact and scale lead acid recycling production capacity to meet the growing demand for lead driven by innovations in automobile batteries, growth in Internet data centers and alternative energy applications including solar, wind, and grid scale storage.

HOW IT WORKS

AquaRefining is a room temperature, water-based process that is fundamentally non-polluting. It utilizes electroplating with continuous removal of lead enabling one module to produce roughly 2.5 – 3 tonnes of ultra pure lead per day.

THE PROCESS

Our battery recycling is a closed-loop process that lowers environmental impact.

MODULAR DEPLOYMENT

AquaRefining technology is constructed as modular systems that can enable smelting operations to increase global lead production without increasing emissions and therefore reduce the permitting challenges typically associated with smelters.
