Metal solvent extraction

ExxonMobil has decades of expertise in developing and choosing the right diluent for the solvent extraction (SX) of metals from minerals.

The Escaid™ fluids portfolio features product grades with low viscosities, high flash points and low evaporation rates specifically designed for solvent extraction mining and battery recycling operations. This versatility offers the right balance of good flow and phase separation with minimal diluent losses, and reduced fire risk relative to high flash kerosene alternatives. Escaid diluents with low aromatic content and high flash points pose low risk to worker safety and are readily biodegradable and not expected to cause toxic effects in the environment.
