Circular Economy is Achieved by Designing Efficient MRT™ Processes into Your Product Lifecycle from the Beginning

Industrial MRT™ Processes are Proven to Improve Process Efficiencies and Reduce Costs while Preserving the Environment 

Examples include replacement of an inefficient ion exchange system with MRT™ and highly efficient recovery of trace copper from acid mine drainage.

Read about ASARCO’s experience in switching from an inefficient ion exchange process to an efficient and clean MRT™ process for copper purification that selectively removes bismuth impurity, as a pure saleable by-product, from copper electrolyte.

IBC is committed to your success and possesses world-class scientific, engineering and manufacturing expertise to solve your most challenging separation, analytical and complexation problems.
