CVMR was approached by a number of PGM producers in South Africa, in 2008, to upgrade their PGM concentrates by removing the base metals from them, using CVMR's Carbonyl Technology. CVMR was able to treat these PGM concentrates by removing their base metals in such forms that added the highest value possible to their Nickel, Iron and Cobalt and thus maximizing the clients' return from all the major components of their concentrates.
Nano Iron Powders are used in ground water remediation, waste water treatment, powder metallurgy, fuel cell catalyst, bio diagnostics, coatings and plastics. Iron Oxide Nano Powder has many other applications. CVMR's technology allows production of Iron Oxide Nano Powders by adding controlled amounts of doping or passivating agents to Iron Nano powders.
