Metals Removal Media with MetalZorb

MetalZorb® is a non-toxic, biodegradable, organic polymer that is ideal for reducing, removing and recovering dissolved heavy metals and metallic ions in applications where rapid capture is required. Applications include stormwater runoff, industrial effluent, landfill leachates, precious metal recovery and land remediation.

For commercial, industrial and residential sites, MetalZorb is a high capacity sponge product that effectively removes metals when deployed in:

  • New installations of CleanWay catch basin filtration systems
  • Retrofits of other manufacturers’ BMPs—by safely and simply replacing the media
  • Treatment of industrial and wastewater effluent, by capturing and retaining dissolved metals
  • Custom fabricated pressure or gravity fed systems to address specific considerations at industrial sites
  • Adsorption booms

MetalZorb removes zinc, copper and lead from stormwater and reduces and removes many other heavy metals commonly found in stormwater and industrial process water discharge. With high ion absorption capabilities and quick, aggressive kinetics, dissolved metals are captured and held in the media so they won’t leach out. Metal-saturated sponge may be easily disposed as solid waste or valuable precious metals can be recovered.

We work with you to determine the right media blend to address your site-specific water quality requirements.
