Critical Metals R&D

In 2020, Geomega began conducting testing at its R&D test centre in Boucherville on waste streams from companies that are in production and to evaluate the potential to extract value that is otherwise being lost today. Geomega’s intention is to apply its various technologies, through collaborative licensing and royalty agreements with several industrial partners, allowing for the extraction of valuable metals contained in their waste streams, which may not be economically, technologically, or environmentally feasible today. Geomega is evaluating several feeds in the mining industry, e-waste, mining tailings and industrial waste that have significant value in various critical metals. The company’s technical team was gradually built since 2015 and is led by Chief Technology Officer Dr. Pouya Hajiani.
The first waste stream to successfully complete bench scale testing using Geomega’s environmentally friendly technology is bauxite residues from alumina refining. Other materials are being evaluated as well based on the following parameters:

  • Leveraging REE expertise to evaluate other sources (mining, industrial & e-waste)
    • Iron-friendly technology (iron byproduct instead of tailings)
    • Recyclability of main reagents
  • Applying technology to other feeds with similar characteristics
    • Iron impurities / high acid consumption
    • REE and other Critical and Strategic Metals present but not accessible with traditional hydrometallurgical routes
    • No current environmental or economical solution
  • Potential for royalties & licenses
    • Reduce environmental footprint (GHG & land/water usage)
    • Advance circular economy within their production
  • Developing innovative technologies for the critical metals essential for a sustainable future such as:
    • REE
    • Co, Ni, V and Li (critical battery materials)
    • Nb, Ti, Ta and Cr
    • Other metals suffering from traditional non-sustainable processes

If you have materials that you would like to be evaluated to be used with Geomega’s technologies, please contact Kiril Mugerman for further information. ( or 450-641-5119 ext. 5653). The company’s technical team was gradually built since 2015 and is led by Chief Technology Officer Dr. Pouya Hajian
