The management of obsolete electronic waste is a crucial environmental issue for the planet, as none of the options on the market allow for the responsible recycling or recovery of components. enim's hydrometallurgical process harvests up to 99% of the strategic minerals contained in obsolete electronic equipment, effectively turning our societies into urban mines.
Unlike pyrometallurgy, which relies on the combustion of electronic waste, hydrometallurgy uses liquid solutions to separate the components, leaving a much smaller environmental footprint than burning the waste.
Electronics are disposed of in bins at drugstores, electronics stores, and businesses through electronics recycling programs.
Waste is sent to electronics recyclers.
Circuit boards are sent to enim.
enim targets and recovers various metals, such as palladium, gold, silver, copper, platinum, aluminum, zinc, tin or lead.
enim sells or redistributes the metals to create a virtuous cycle.
President and CEO of enim. Former CEO of InnovHQ, a subsidiary of Hydro-Québec responsible for the commercialization of innovative technologies.
At the head of enim, he wishes to contribute at the development of a greener and more environmentally friendly economy to allow future generations to meet their needs while minimizing the environmental footprint in a sustainable manner.
He previously held key positions related to innovation and development at Hydro-Québec and Bombardier. Gabriel is a trilingual Quebec-based manager and lawyer. He has contributed to the success of numerous international projects, playing commercial, business development and sales roles. Gabriel is also involved in tennis world, being Tennis's Montreal's Chairman and National Bank Open presented by Roger's Master of Ceremonies. At enim, he intends to change the way resources are valued by building long-term partnerships based on the common good.
Seneca is the firm behind the launch of Recyclage Lithion, which initiated the creation of enim.
Dundee Sustainable Technologies has developed metal extraction processes for the mining industry.
Their solution eliminates cyanide and captures arsenic from existing processes to reduce their environmental impact. The patented CLEVR process will be adapted and used to maximize the extraction of precious metals from obsolete electronic scrap. Dundee Sustainable Technologies operates a plant and laboratory in Thetford Mines.
Our process has the power to change the recovery cycle of obsolete electronic products in an economical, sustainable and social way.

Talking about sustainable development
Reducing our ecological footprint while optimizing the use of resources already extracted from our old electronic devices is possible. There are alternative solutions to the current pyrometallurgy methods that pollute and do not recover the precious metals to their full potential. Our electronic waste represents a real gold mine that enim will valorize again and again with its green and socially acceptable solution. Let's talk about it!
