Our powerful proprietary technology brings unprecedented efficiency to the rapid extraction of precious metals. Excir has the potential to help close the loop on the Circular Supply Chain.
Each gram of precious metal we produce has ‘verified provenance’ that provides assurance that all precious metals are ethically sourced and 100% traceable to their origin.
Excir technology allows for the efficient extraction of precious metals from alternative mining sources including E-waste. The Excir lixiviant is an extremely mild and eco-friendly solution that can be recycled with negligible environmental impact.
WE ARE A CATALYST
We have pioneered an innovative technology that quickly, safely
and selectively, extracts precious metals — specifically gold, palladium,
and platinum — from substrates. Excir brings new light to responsibly monetizing age-old problems. We are quickly leveraging our successes
from the E-waste vertical into R&D on Spent Catalyst and Mining verticals.
Our patented technology recovers 99%+ of gold from E-waste in a matter of seconds. Excir’s truly artisanal cutting-edge technology offers a different solution to the world’s fastest-growing waste stream by creating significant economic value from previously untapped sources.
In addition, Excir is developing patented technology that will be used to transform the entire makeup of the E-waste into usable consumer products; enabling the circular economy. E-waste is separated into three streams: precious metals, base metals, and plastics. Excir is dedicated to truly reach a zero-landfill impact.
Excir understands our role as an ethical steward of the planet’s
finite natural resources. Our end goal is to have a significant
impact on industry’s use of cyanide within mining.
