"Our earth and its resources are precious.

Megan O'Connor

A Sustainable Path to a Sustainable Planet.

Demand for critical minerals 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 minerals needed for the energy transition are already in circulation today. We just didn’t have a clean, profitable way of retrieving them, until now.

About Us

Nth Cycle is a metals processing 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.

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.


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 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. 

Nth Cycle Oyster


Existing technologies that recover critical minerals from e-waste, scrap, and mining are carbon intensive and inefficient. Pyrometallurgy uses large, carbon-intensive furnaces that consume excessive energy and emit greenhouse gases; hydrometallurgy uses harmful acids and solvents that create tons of environmentally-harmful chemical waste. Both processes were invented over 50 years ago.

At Nth Cycle, we have a different approach to expanding the supply of critical minerals for the clean energy revolution. We leverage the power of electro-extraction: clean and modular technology for reliably recovering critical minerals from e-waste and low-grade mine tailings using electricity.
