Innovative technology created to minimize the environmental footprint of mining

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

The B.C. Minister of Energy, Mines and Low-Carbon Innovation Josie Osborne has expressed her support for pH7’s innovative thinking, stating that the near net-zero environmental impact in the extraction of critical minerals and metals demonstrates the potential to transform mining around the world. pH7 Technologies founder and CEO Mohammad Doostmohammadi has stated his commitment to bringing a clean-tech solution to scale the extraction of metals, making existing processes more sustainable and cost-effective.

As part of their ongoing efforts to promote clean energy, British Columbia has established the ICE Fund which provides $850,000 in funding for pH7’s pilot project that aims to process 5,000 kilograms of raw materials per day into approximately 2,500 kilograms of extracted platinum group metals per year. Through this project, pH7 hopes to demonstrate their technology’s ability to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and promote clean renewable energy technologies in BC’s mining sector.
