With ORE Breaker, we're paving the way for a greener and more effective approach to mining, ensuring that our precious resources are extracted responsibly and sustainably.

Ore Breaker Heavy Metal Decomposer

Ore Breaker Heavy Metals Decomposer is a groundbreaking technology developed by EcoBiome to rapidly remediate and decompose heavy metals. Using specialty and patent-pending transformation microbes, we've developed a novel heavy metal degrading pathway unique to EcoBiome technology. This pathway enables the biotransformation and complete remediation of heavy metals, offering a more sustainable and efficient solution for heavy metal pollution. With Ore Breaker Heavy Metals Decomposer, we're proud to be at the forefront of innovation, providing a cutting-edge technology that tackles one of the most significant environmental challenges of our time.

Our Testing Process

EcoBiome’s proprietary protocol allows for the testing of existing microbes and identification of those attracted to specific target elements, enabling isolation and extraction of those elements. The effective microbes are then replicated and produced in significant volumes.

EcoBiome’s technology can discover suitable candidates among any microbes, including the 95% of microbes that have yet to be identified. This allows for the identification of the optimal solution for any extraction task and eliminates the need for genetically modified microbes.

All EcoBiome microbe products are certified organic by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

EcoBiome in Action

The Problem

Gold recovery using cyanide was completely blocked by high levels of preg-robbing carbon and deleterious elements. 

Results After a 4-Day EcoBiome Treatment

The Problem

Gold recovery using cyanide was less than 6% due to preg-robbing carbon and deleterious elements. 

Results After a 4-Day EcoBiome Treatment

The Problem

Gold recovery using cyanide was less than 2% due to extremely high levels of carbon and the presence of other deleterious elements.

Results After a 4-Day EcoBiome Treatment

The Problem

Gold recovery using cyanide was only 42% due to preg-robbing carbon and the presence of deleterious elements.
