Superior & Sustainable Metals Production
The Intec Process was originally developed by Intec Ltd, which spent over US$70m advancing the technology to commercial readiness.
As appropriate to the systematic approach to the development of new technology, Intec advanced the development through a progression of operations of increasing scale: first small laboratory (beaker) trials, then larger laboratory (tank, batch and semi-continuous) trials, then pilot plant operations and demonstration plant. Collectively, these have developed approximately ten years of operating experience.
Operations have included:
1994-1995: Intec Copper Process, 3 pilot plant campaigns (~9 months), Chatswood, Sydney Australia
1998-2000: Intec Copper Process, demonstration plant (~18 months), St Peters, Sydney Australia
2004: Intec Gold Process, pilot plant, Brookvale, Sydney Australia
2005-2008: Intec Zinc Process, demonstration plant (~18 months), Burnie, Australia
2006: Intec Copper Process, electrowinning cell demonstration scale, Sydney University, Australia
2010-2013: Intec Zinc/Lead Process, commercial waste recycling operations, Burnie Australia
2011: Intec Zinc Process, spent pickle liquor (SPL) recycling commercial-scale trial, Burnie Australia
2014 (planned): Intec Zinc Process, pilot plant, Iran
