The greener way to extract precious metals

Published

on

Throw tradition out the window!

If you wanted to extract Platinum and Palladium from diesel catalytic converters, you needed to have a smelter.  But they are now refusing to process them due to the problems they cause. 

Mineworx Technologies has come up with an ingenious way to recover 90% of the precious metals, in a clean tech proprietary process, in an industry that presents a $25b yearly opportunity.

“Up until a short time ago, the only was way to extract these precious metals was smelters,” Mineworx CEO Greg Pendura revealed.  “However, smelters are now refusing to accept diesel as it causes issues in their processing plants.

“I can see there being a large oversupply of spent diesel catalytic converters with no home to go.”

Pendura argues that the company’s ability to process the precious metals makes them a market leader going into the future, whilst also being environmentally focused.

“Smelters have received their fair share of bad press on the environmental side,” Pendura continues. “(Mineworx) has a clean processing technology which will be able to extract Platinum and Palladium in a clean tech environment.

“To have a process like this on North American soil will be well perceived.”

The CEO also gave some insights into the next steps for a commercial rollout.

“We are in the final stages of testing our pilot plant,” Pendura says. “Once completed, it will be transported to our partner, Davis Recycling, in Tennessee, United States, before beginning final-stage design.

“This will be the final step before commercial development of our plant, in the fourth quarter.”

Improving digital experience is everything

Published

All eyes are now on businesses as they navigate the online world.

Organisations are trying to optimise their website, social media and mobile applications to capture customers, and provide a flawless digital experience.

But, how can this be done?

“There is a real thirst for leveraging the data of customer behaviour,” Optimizely‘s Paul North revealed to Ticker News. “This is all a part of the customer digital experience online.”

North also spoke about the importance of the company’s ‘data core service’ – a free service for clients, to better understand customers and how it can help businesses to grow.

“We are getting queries from our customers, about what their customers are doing online,” he adds. “every touchpoint you ave with a customer is a chance to get to know them better.

“You also get the chance to understand them, the content they are interested in, and to enrich their experience.”

North also went on to detail why a personalised aspect is crucial in a fast-paced world.

“Everyone in the digital space talks about the three-second flicker,” he continues. “If you don’t have the engagement in real-time, you lose them to another digital property.

“This could be your competitor, or another service, or another avenue of interest that the end user may have.

“Our aim is to help organisations contextualise customer experiences in real-time using Artificial Intelligence and a data bank built up, and by doing this, the experience become relevant and contextualised, keeping people engaged with your brand.”

The way people train and take care of their body has significantly changed over the years, with bodyweight calisthenics becoming a popular choice for many.

Maximum Potential Calisthenics‘ Nathan Leith says there has been a boom over the past 12-24 months in the industry.

“There has been a decrease over the past decade of people wanting to go to the gym,” Leith points out on Ticker News. “They don’t want to build that huge, massive physique.

“A structural shift towards functional training has been seen.

“People want to stay mobile, build strength and learn a few more skills.”

Leith argues there are benefits for people to get into Calisthenics, as it appeals to anyone.

“There is no need for weights, or a gym,” he highlights. “It can be done outside and people seem to love it.”

“Anybody is able to do it, especially if people are able to do the moves and then improve on it.”

Leith also points out form and safety are paramount when doing the exercises, which is why they keep their class sizes small.
