Revolutionizing Mining with Sustainable Chemical Process: pH7 Technologies

Innovative technology created to minimize the environmental footprint of mining

Vancouver-based pH7 Technologies is revolutionizing the mining industry with a new chemical process that extracts critical minerals with minimal environmental impact. The company has developed a proprietary closed-loop process that uses advanced chemistry to efficiently extract and refine metals from low-grade resources or difficult substrates. The metal alloys, including platinum group metals, copper, and tin, produced by pH7 are then refined by industrial customers.

The B.C. government has praised the innovation of pH7 Technologies, with Minister of Energy, Mines and Low-Carbon Innovation Josie Osborne stating, “With near net-zero environmental impact in the extraction of critical metals and minerals, pH7 is demonstrating the kind of innovative thinking that can transform mining around the world.” pH7 Technologies founder and CEO Mohammad Doostmohammadi expressed the company’s 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.

To further demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, 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 was established in 2007 to support B.C.’s clean-energy sector by funding projects that reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and promote clean, renewable energy technologies.
