Koan was created with the purpose of increasing copper production to face the energy transition, understanding that this is crucial to achieve a greener world.
For this reason, it was coherent to formulate a way to obtain the main critical metal for this transition in the most friendly and integrated way with the ecosystem. From this premise, the Quantum Extraction (QX) method was developed, using this technology, we take advantage of idle or abandoned infrastructure to increase copper yield under a quick to deploy & low investment strategy.
It allows copper extraction in less time than conventional leaching and flotation, with less sulfuric acid consumption (between 30 and 50% less) and water (up to 10 times less).
Shorter process cycles compared with traditional methods, up to 60 days.
