Sixth Wave Innovations (SIXW) has been granted a patent for its metal extraction and purification process using Molecularly Imprinted Polymers.

Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPS) bind to templated molecules in manufacturing allowing for specific molecular recognition, allowing for the separation of valuable metals from ore processing and waste streams. 

The United States and Canada will require a secure domestic supply of many critical metals such as lithium and cobalt that are currently processed in China, in order maintain economic leadership during the global transition to electrification and sustainable power generation. Sixth Wave’s IXOS technology delivers clean, efficient metal processing technology that supports ESG guidelines. 

This patent extends the company’s existing patent portfolio to include methodologies relating to molecularly imprinted polymers that selectively bind to target metals ions and achieve more efficient metal extraction.

Dr. Gluckman, President and CEO of Sixth Wave, commented on the news.

“Patents remain a valued part of the company’s strategy. This patent reinforces Sixth Wave’s position as a leader in technology innovation with patented products for the enormous mining and metals recycling markets. Additionally, the technology promotes and allows cleaner and more environmentally friendly utilization of natural resources. Sixth Wave believes there are significant revenue opportunities for the company’s MIPS for metals purification currently sold under the IXOS brand name. This technology enables the delivery of efficient, scalable, environmentally friendly, and lower cost solutions to our mining customers.”

Sixth Wave is a development stage nanotechnology company with patented technologies that focus on extraction and detection of target substances at the molecular level using highly specialized molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). The company is in the process of commercializing IXOS, a line of extraction polymers for the gold mining industry.

Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (SIXW) opened trading at C$0.06.
