The droSRITE™ of PyroGenesis toll service has two types of revenue: i) a traditional toll per tonne of processed slag, which varies from region to region and is generally up to $450 per tonne, and (ii) a bonus based on increased aluminum recovery, generated in a unique way by The DROSRITE™ technology of PyroGenesis, which is generally between 10% and 20%. Furukawa Company Group`s metallurgical business was born out of the company`s creation and currently produces and markets electrolytic copper, electrolytic gold, electrolytic silver and sulphuric acid. In Furukwa`s former Seukan mine, the Ashio Copper mine, various state-of-the-art technologies have been developed. Supported by the technologies grown at Ashio for many years, we are aggressively involved in mining activities abroad. We also invested in Ohahama Smelting and Refining Co., Ltd. And Hibi Kyodo Smelting Co., Ltd. and have signed toll contracts with them. On the basis of these contracts, we buy copper concentrates and copper scraps, and we let these companies carry out the fusion process, thus forming an optimal production system for electrolytic copper, sulphuric acid and other materials. After prevention, the agreement provides that the customer will charge pyroGenesis for the construction, installation and operation of a DROSRITE facility™ with the potential for additional systems to process its hot slag on site, recover metal aluminum and return it to the customer and manage the resulting non-hazardous residues. The terms of a possible toll agreement are based on the demonstration economy, which is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2019. PyroGenesis`s DROSRITE™ system is a proven, salt-free, inexpensive and sustainable process to maximize metal recovery from slag, a waste that is arriving in the metallurgical industry. PyroGenesis`s patented process avoids costly metal losses while reducing a hut`s carbon footprint and energy consumption, providing a high return on investment.
The system was designed to process and recover precious metals such as aluminum, zinc and copper from slag. It should be noted that a toll service system is an agreement in which a cabin makes available to a third of the slag that can be processed for a fee, either on site or off site. We make sulphuric acid from sulphur dioxide that occurs when copper concentrates are fused. Its applications range from fertilizers, industrial uses, medical care to batteries. “PyroGenesis` on-site DROSRITE™ toll services take into account all environmental concerns in the management of dross,” said Pierre Carabin, Chief Technology Officer und Chief Strategist at PyroGenesis. “Existing technologies continue to offer salt-based treatment technologies and to correct the resulting hazardous saline slag waste by developing complex post-machining technologies, salt slag washing technologies. The result is a heavy supply in three stages: (i) the cabin must be used to cool the slag and (ii) the slag is then treated with salt-based technology that produces hazardous and toxic salt slag residues and (iii) the salty slag residues, currently heavily contaminated, must be transported to a third facility specially designed for the washing of salty slag and the transformation of the material into non-hazardous material.
