PBT’s SAL and CL technologies are a breakthrough in the clean energy evolution.
Our Selective Acid Leach (SAL) and Combined Leach (CL) technologies were developed by the University of Queensland in conjunction with the PBT technical team. When combined the SAL and CL technologies upgrade primary intermediate concentrates (Mixed Hydroxide Precipitates or Sulphide Concentrates) and secondary recycled materials (black mass) into precursor Cathode Active Materials (pCAM).
The elegance and simplicity of our advanced processing technologies mean we can process primary intermediate materials and secondary recycled materials into a flexible, consistent, cleaner end-product than other processing methods. This gives us greater commercial flexibility than other producers.
PBT’s technology can be used for both primary and secondary production
- Simple patented processes that remove the need for Solvent Extraction (SX), Electro refining and Smelting processes.
- Strong clean and immediate separation of nickel and cobalt
- Produces pCAM products from both primary and secondary feed materials
- Flow sheet easily adjusts for all product mixes(e.g. NMC 622 or NMC 811)
