Metals are essential raw materials that are used in nearly all of today’s consumer and industrial products. Water management is becoming an increasingly important aspect of metal-mining operations due to the steadily increasing use of hydrometallurgy to extract metals, as compared to other methods. Resins and other technologies that can be used to purify water can also be used to isolate, extract, and purify certain elements. With our ion exchange expertise, and through the development of metal-selective applications and technologies, we assist the mining and hydrometallurgy industry recover valuable metals in the most efficient and environmentally sustainable way possible.

AmberSep process resins are available for extraction of base metals, gold, platinum group metals, uranium, and mine wastewater applications.
DuPont Ion Exchange Enables the Recovery of Useful Mining By-products
DuPont's AmberSep M4195 and XUS43578 allow the reduction of nickel content in copper rod manufacturing, producing higher purity products and allowing by-product recovery, resulting in more saleable goods for the large copper mine and smelting complex in South Africa.
