waste, process or mining stream 

the functionalized polymer is mixed with the untreated stream containing the target metal

metal loaded polymer flocculated and separated from the stream using  filtration 

clean water to discharge / further processing

pH adjustment to leach out metal salts from Selox solid

the original functionalized polymer and surfactant can simply be recycled and reused
