We aim to reinvent the industry

Mint’s local metal recovery processing reduces reliance on mining while providing low-carbon metals to enhance the circular economy.

Our mission

At Mint we are innovating sustainable biotech solutions tackling some of the biggest challenges arising from the climate emergency:

Minimising waste - Mint biorefineries recover valuable metals in the city where the waste is produced. This can put an end to the environmental and humanitarian catastrophe caused by the export of these hazardous waste streams.

Metals for the circular economy - Mint biorefineries produce pure, low-carbon metals recycled directly to a local (circular) economy. For the first time, there is a choice: conventionally mined materials or Mint’s low-carbon, sustainable metals.

Mint's vision

“Mint's vision is to provide a low cost, sustainable solution to recover precious metals from the urban mine, by having a biorefinery in every major city around the world.”

$80bn

Every year over US$80bn of valuable metals are discarded in consumer and industrial waste streams (the urban mine).

91%

Mint saves over 90% of the carbon produced in recovering metals such as gold compared to conventional mining or smelting.

2%

Mint’s recovery process uses only 2% of the power and water per kilogram of gold compared with conventional mined resources.
