The team at SWM repurposes by separating and sorting of recoverable metal waste/scrap. Then uses a proprietarymechanical transformation process to produce secondary raw materials (a form readily transformed into new raw materials). The output produced by the end of this production process is known as black mass - a ready product to be up-cycled for industrial use.
The primary service of SWM is electronic waste solutioning. This represents a complete customer fulfilment order process that begins with joint inspections and evaluations with customers/ stakeholders to understanding their unique business needs when it comes to responsible disposal, working closely with smelting plants and local scrap dealers to appropriately manage the disposal process (including SWM’s proprietary battery recycling process, and determining secondary usage of EV batteries for those requiring less energy density usage), providing customers/ stakeholders the peace of minds that their electronic waste has been taken care of in a compliant and transparent manner.
Innovation with Sustainability SWM is consciously seeking to reduce its carbon footprints emitted to the environment. “We are reviewing innovative approaches to actively reduce our operational energy density/ intensity and embarking on our trajectory calculation on our absolute carbon emission and adopting a science-based approach to reducing that impact,” says Willie. Further, the company is continuing refinement studies and driving local innovation through strategic collaboration(s) with institutions of higher learning in Singapore on its extraction technology to transform waste into readily available raw materials for batteries manufacturing as a way to achieve resource sustainability.
An audacious effort has also been taken by the team at SWM to provide further refinement to the current extraction process. Pending patents, SWM and its strategic collaborating partners are launching laboratory trial pilot electrochemical and organic hydrometallurgy processes within SWM’s premises to further review commercial viability and evaluate process scalability.
Poised to lead the forefront for battery recycling innovation, SWM aims to offer to its diverse stakeholders environmentally friendly e-waste management solutions that meet the unique needs of businesses. Waste today, precious resources tomorrow. “Our momentum for the future can be reflected through the multiplicity of efforts we are making today within SWM and in Singapore. We remain committed to delivering our vision, accelerating our progress to ensure local community adaptation, adoption and engagement as we continue to drive local awareness, participation and involvement,” concludes Willie.
