Keeping Critical Metals in Circulation Forever.

Demand for critical metals to power the energy transition is growing exponentially. Yet, we know mining deeper and broader, and building landfills higher and wider, works against our fight to save the planet. At Nth Cycle, we see the path forward. We believe all the critical metals needed for the energy transition are already in circulation today. And now we have a clean, profitable way of retrieving them.

Nth Cycle is Decarbonizing the Critical Mineral Supply Chain.

For Miners & REFINERS

Upgrade at the mine & refining facility.

Extract critical metals at the mining site from ore concentrate, waste and bleed streams. We help miners reduce waste streams and extend the life of a mine by recovering metals from low grade ores economically. 


We turn waste into profits.

Reduce transportation and operating costs significantly to improve scrap operations profits compared to sending the scrap directly to a pyro or hydro refinery. Electro-extraction can tune to a wide range of materials and e-waste.

For Manufacturers

Improve Supply Chain Efficiency.

We offer a lower-cost and lower-emissions supply of critical minerals for manufacturing while also managing manufacturing waste streams and end-of-life recycling programs. Our modular technology can install onsite.

About Us

Nth Cycle is a metals refining technology company.

We work with battery recyclers, scrappers, refiners and miners. Our customizable and clean electro-extraction solution installs onsite to recover critical minerals from separated e-waste, low-grade ore, mine tailings and many other forms of mineral scrap and waste. We are the heart of metals processing – the crucial step that profitably separates critical minerals from other elements, transforming them into production-grade feedstocks for the clean energy transition.
