Revolutionizing Mineral Extraction: Vancouver-Based pH7 Technologies Develops Closed-Loop Process with Near Net-Zero Environmental Impact

Innovative technology created to minimize mining’s environmental footprint

Vancouver-based pH7 Technologies is developing a new chemical process to extract critical minerals with minimal environmental impact. The closed-loop process uses advanced chemistry to extract and refine metals from low-grade resources or difficult substrates in a cost-effective manner. The metal alloys produced by pH7 include platinum group metals, copper, and tin, which are then refined by industrial customers.

British Columbia (B.C.) Minister of Energy, Mines and Low-Carbon Innovation Josie Osborne praised pH7 for their near net-zero environmental impact in extracting critical metals. Founder and CEO Mohammad Doostmohammadi expressed optimism about the potential for growth and commercialization of their technology with the support of the Province’s ICE Fund. The company aims to scale up the extraction of metals in a more sustainable and cost-effective manner to meet the increasing demand for critical metals in a clean tech future.

pH7 will receive $850,000 from the ICE Fund to conduct a pilot project processing 5,000 kilograms of raw materials per day, resulting in 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 promote clean, renewable energy technologies and reduce fossil fuel consumption to help preserve the environment.
