Green Solution Enables Metal Extraction in the Atacama Desert Without Nitrogen Oxide Challenge

Mining giant opts for sustainable technology from Krajete GmbH
By: Krajete GmbH
PASCHING, Austria - Feb. 7, 2023 - PRLog -- A green technology based on natural materials to recover nitrogen oxide emissions is now being tested for use in copper extraction in Chile's Atacama Desert. The technology, developed by Austria's Krajete GmbH and perfected in collaboration with Audi AG, was recently discovered by technology scouts from one of the world's largest mining groups. The group focuses on the recovery of nitrogen oxides (NOx) produced during copper mining and their further use for valuable materials. Krajete GmbH's zeolite-based process seems to offer the optimal solution here and will now be tested in a first test plant.

The extraction of copper from mineral ores is accompanied by the emission of large quantities of nitrogen oxides (NOx). These are still often released into the atmosphere, but increased environmental sensitivity and legal requirements have now led to a rethink in the industry. The realisation that these exhaust gases can be turned into valuable raw materials if they are intelligently recovered is accelerating this reorientation and making companies look for innovative, sustainable ways.

About Krajete GmbH (as of 2023):

The Austrian company innovates & develops nature-inspired solutions for gas purification and high-performance gas fermentation. Activities focus on adsorber-based purification of emission gases and biological methane production using archaea. Successful processes from nature serve as a starting point for high-performance processes with commercial added value.
