About us

Seloxium provides materials and services for the selective recovery of valuable metals from industrial waste to mining, refining and recycling companies. Some metals, despite their value, are discharged as pollutants in waste streams due to the difficulty and cost associated with recovering them. Our offerings help companies reduce carbon emissions, energy consumption, and water contamination while increasing the purity and profitability of metal production.
