WNT Ventures invest into Mint Innovation

WNT Ventures are pleased to announce their investment into NZ clean tech company Mint Innovation.

Founded and led by the experienced team of Dr Will Barker (ex Lanzatech and CE of NZBio) and Dr Ollie Crush (biotechnologist), Mint Innovation have developed a unique technology centered around biometallurgy; an emerging field using a mixture of chemical and microbial approaches aimed at recovering precious metals from a range of waste streams.

In developing a process that is recyclable, low cost and fully scalable, Mint will open the door to a solution for recovering value from waste materials including not only electronic metals, but mining residues, heavy metal recovery and toxic metal waste.

We welcome Mint Innovation to the WNT Portfolio and look forward to being part of their journey.
