Founded in 2000, GreenNovo Environmental Technology Co., Ltd. successfully trailblazers the approach of recycling heavy metals contained in the solid industrial wastes produced by the metallurgy and chemical processing industries. With our state-of-the-art technologies and methods, heavy metal pollution can be eliminated, recycled and treated without further contamination right from the source. As the leading and most advanced industrial waste recycling company in China, GreenNovo has the most complete industrial operations and our steel dust treatment plant is the largest in scale in the world and features the most sophisticated technology.
GreenNovo has three main integrated processing centers in Yunnan, Jiangxi, and Hebei, covering a majority of pyrometallurgy processing bases around China.Our service network blankets the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Mid-West, Yangtze River Delta, and Pearl River Delta regions, with a processing capacity of over 1.2 million tons of solid industrial waste every year.
GreenNovo’s independently developed patented core technology of “Pyrometallurgical Enrichment and Hydrometallurgical Separation Integrated with Multi-segment Coupling” enables the extraction of valuable elements from solid industrial wastes, such as steel dust. With our mature, stable industrial technology, the global challenges like dechlorination and impurity-removing of industrial waste containing heavy metal have been tackled. Our patented technology is able to extract multiple valuable elements such as zinc, indium, lead, cadmium, bismuth, tin, and iodine, as well as iron concentration powder and reduced iron powder and other industrial products from industrial waste. The waste heat from the extraction process is used to generate electricity, while the tailings are used to produce green building materials. There is zero drainage or discharge throughout the entire process, achieving the complete extraction of valuable elements from industrial waste. This technology has developed to its seventh generation, has been used in large-scale industrial operations for over 10 years, and has passed ISO9001, 14001, and 28001 international certifications.
GreenNovo was respectively praised to be the “Key High-tech Enterprise in the State Torch Program”, “New Technology in Industrial Pollution Prevention Demonstration Project” and “Heavy Metal Pollution Treatment and Recycle Demonstration Project” by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, on the other hand, identified our company as the “Demonstration Project of Comprehensive Utilization of National Resources with Advanced and Applicable Technology”, “National-Level Base of Comprehensive Recycling of Industrial Solid Waste in GeJiu, Yunnan—the Demonstration Center for Integrated Resource-based Recycling of Solid Waste Containing Heavy Metals in Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, and last but not least, the ‘Key Construction Project of the Coordinated Development of the Comprehensive Utilization of Industrial Resources in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province and Surrounding Industrial Sites. GreenNovo has also led or participated in drafting and compiling many industry standards, rules and regulations, such as the “Renewable Raw Zinc Material”, “Crude Indium”, and “Lead and Zinc Industry Standard Conditions (2015)”.
Supported by more and more favorable policies of environmental protection industry, GreenNovo has become sought-after in the capital market relying on its unique technical edge and the leading position in the subdivided market. Since 2011, prestigious strategic investors like CICC, foundation under Ministry of Civil Affairs, Legend Holding, and China Securities has been injecting consistent capitals into GreenNovo.
GreenNovo is accelerating its pace in integrated innovation and is leveraging capital to push the development of the industry. In addition to broadening our industrial landscape and innovating business models, GreenNovo is also working closely with numerous large & medium sized steel and iron and non-ferrous metals smelting companies across China to develop and expand new business models like our Contract Environmental Services (CES). Together, we are leading the industry towards the future. Meanwhile, GreenNovo is starting to enter overseas markets, and currently seeking opportunities of exporting technologies and management operation services to the United States, Peru, and other countries.
GreenNovo will continue to strive towards our mission of “innovate to create a greener future”, and promote the game-changing transformation of industrial waste disposal into industrial waste recycling. This will embark on a new chapter for the environmental protection industry globally.
