Boston Metal Expands High-Value Metals Business in Brazil

Share

Boston Metal, a global metals technology solutions company, will deploy its molten oxide electrolysis (MOE) platform technology to recover high-value metals from mining waste in Brazil.

Boston Metal do Brasil, a wholly owned subsidiary, opened in August and construction is underway on facilities in the municipality of Coronel Xavier Chaves near São João del Rei, Minas Gerais.

Boston Metal’s patented MOE technology uses electricity to selectively extract valuable metals from complex, low-concentration materials that are currently considered waste. This enables miners to reduce the financial and environmental liabilities of slag, by leveraging this natural by-product of metal production to create new revenue streams.

Mineração Taboca S.A., a major Brazilian producer of refined tin and other industrial minerals including niobium and tantalum, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to explore the use of Boston Metal’s MOE technology through a collaboration that seeks to advance the efficiency of metals production while demonstrating a sustainable and profitable solution for the mining industry. Process development for the MOU will be performed at Boston Metal do Brasil.

“MOE provides the metals industry with a more efficient, lower cost, and greener solution to produce a variety of metals and alloys from a wide range of feedstocks,” said Itamar Resende, president of Boston Metal do Brasil. “We’re looking forward to further developing our high-value metals business and demonstrating the efficiency of our MOE solution to transform mining waste into sources of revenue.”

With commercialization of the MOE technology for high-value metals expected in 2023, metals and mining industry veteran Itamar Resende recently welcomed Alexandre Quinze as Vice President. Quinze is tasked with developing operations in Brazil and has over 30 years of experience with all levels of companies, from startups to multinational corporations.

Boston Metal’s high-value metals business complements the work it is doing to scale up its MOE platform for the steel industry. Using renewable electricity, MOE can also be applied to convert all grades of iron ore into emissions-free steel. Once this groundbreaking technology becomes commercially available by 2026, steel producers will be able to cost-effectively achieve net zero scope 1 and 2 emissions and meet growing global demand for green steel.
