CoTec holds stakes in four key technologies and three assets, with the goal of obtaining 10 technologies, and 30-40 assets. The Company is actively developing Joint Ventures (JVs) to transform targeted assets and unlock value.
CoTec continues to be presented with technology investment opportunities ranging from innovative battery related technology, arsenic, cyanide, silica and radioactive material extraction and safe storage to production of precious metals from catalytic converters via hydromet processes which avoid the carbon emissions of smelting. The reverse mining and carbon capture technology opportunities received to date involve gold, platinum, palladium, lithium, coal, iron ore, graphite, ferrous and some non-ferrous metals.
CoTec intends to acquire and operate commodity rich assets, where it can apply its innovative, eco-friendly, disruptive technologies to produce critical minerals rapidly.
Unlike in traditional mining, CoTec will seek out marginal assets, waste and even sometimes liabilities, where it believes its technologies can make a transformation from loss-making to profitability, or from marginal to much more lucrative businesses thereby creating value for its shareholders. The CoTec model will involve transforming waste to wealth, reducing environmental footprint, whilst liberating commodities at a far lower carbon footprint than historic processes.
Summary of current technologies and assets are as follows:
