Metals Made NewBreakthrough Clean Technology For Metals Recycling & Recovery
Descycle was founded in 2018 with the sole mission of commercialising a revolutionary new class of chemistry, developed by the University of Leicester, Deep Eutectic Solvents (DES).
DES have a very broad scope of potential applications across multiple industries and Descycle is focused on developing processes that will; have the highest environmental impact, that address the UN’s sustainable development goals, & have sufficient economic development scaling potential to generate over U$1 billion revenue per annum.
Descycle is guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals to develop novel & low-impact metals processing technologies underpinned by our revolutionary chemistry
Our solutions will:
Eliminate or drastically lower CO2 emissions
Remove the need for highly toxic chemicals
Replace energy-intensive smelters
Recycle metals more efficiently with minimal environmental impact
E-waste is the world's fastest growing waste stream, with US$59bn produced in 2020.
The way in which we produce, consume, and dispose of e-waste is unsustainable.
The Descycle process has been developed as a disruptive & clean alternative to current high-impact & capital intensive recycling methods.
Battery & Critical Metals
Descycle is developing applications for the mining sector focusing on battery and critical metals linked to electrification and EV's
Nickel Laterites - battery grade nickel
Gold - replacing cyanide & other toxic solvents
Copper & Base Metals - water-free processing
Rare Earth Elements - simplify complex processing
- Capital raise
- Business Partner Selection
- Joint ventures
