Haber signs lease, begins pilot operations.

Haber Inc., a Massachusetts-based company with proprietary technology for processing electronic scrap and precious-metal-bearing ores, has announced that it has signed a lease agreement for a 3,000-square-foot industrial building in Wakefield, Mass., to begin pilot/commercial operations using its precious metals recovery technologies.

According to a press release, Haber plans to install a precious metals recovery line that will be capable of processing electronic scrap and gold ore, allowing the company to begin production on various precious-metal-bearing materials.

"This is the first of a new and revolutionary type of recycling business model," Albert B. Conti, president and chief operating officer of Haber, says. "Learning to optimize our unique operations in this small-scale facility is more focused and cost effective than beginning immediately with a large-scale plant."

The pilot facility will generate the data needed for a planned scale-up to a larger U.S. facility. The proprietary hydrometallurgical extraction and recovery technology developed by Haber for e-scrap and gold ores requires that the established operating parameters for each type of material be confirmed under production conditions, according to the company.

"This site will be used to evaluate our process flow configurations and confirm equipment specifications while, at the same time, recovering precious metals, producing various metal compounds and selling them through established sales channels," Conti says. "Haber has made major advancements in its electronic scrap recovery process and is anxious to demonstrate the unique performance and the overwhelming economic advantages this technology offers when compared to competing recycling processes. Importantly, this facility also affords the company additional time to weigh and evaluate a number of diverse business opportunities before committing to a larger permanent site location," he adds.

Conti says Haber expects to see revenues from its batch lots in the fourth quarter of this year.
