Fortum's hydrometallurgical recycling business has been built around industrial symbiosis and co-operation with companies where industrial lateral flow and waste are processed on-site to take advantage of the raw materials present in these flows. Full recovery service concept is based on the combination of known hydrometallurgical processes with novel technologies in a cost-efficient way.
Hydrometallurgical recycling and services
Fortum is specialized in hydrometallurgical processing and offers an innovative solution for efficiently recovering valuable metal components in situ from various metal-containing side or waste streams.
The secondary raw materials are turned into sellable products for various industries.
Technologies and processes have been developed to sustainably produce high grade chemical compounds from various industrial waste and side-streams. Within the production of CWORKS® products, CO2 emissions are generated up to 90 % less compared to the traditional way of producing these compounds.
Full on-site reclamation service concept provides a cost efficient and sustainable way for companies in the metal and chemicals industries to treat their side streams. We have the technology and know-how to sustainably treat side streams to reduce the on-site landfilling of potentially hazardous industrial waste. The service concept reclaims valuable resources from the processed side stream and turns these into value added products.
