What improvements can EMEW® make to an existing brownfield Merrill Crowe plant?
The EMEW technology is perfectly suited to expanding silver production from an existing operation, even if Merrill Crowe is currently the primary installation at the site. Installation of EMEW facility does not add significant complexity to the project. Rather it has the capacity to take operating pressure off a Merrill Crowe facility and thereby both extend its life and increase its efficiency. The technology is capable also of completely replacing the smelting step in a Merrill Crowe plant – thereby achieving increase silver recovery (no slag losses) and, again, simplifying the total circuit.
