METAPLEX 2000 is a fungus inoculum and a proprietary aqueous organic acid salt solution which forms a chemical matrix capable of removing virtually all traces of transition/heavy metals and their complex salts from an aqueous/liquid waste stream.

The organic acid salts in METAPLEX 2000 remove heavy metals through a complexing reaction. In this reaction, METAPLEX 2000 binds to the metallic atom to form an insoluble "metaplex sphere" around the ion. The "metaplex sphere" also exhibits a partial outer charge that attracts other metaplex-metal complexes. As these insoluble particles circulate within the waste stream, they physically bind to each other and begin to flocculate. Within 2-4 minutes, flocculation is essentially complete and a low volume, dense heavy metal laden sludge has been formed, which settles rapidly (within 30 minutes).

METAPLEX 2000 will remove all transition metals and their respective salts. These include iron, copper, nickel, cobalt, zinc, mercury, cadmium, lead, silver, gold, platinum, chromium and tin. METAPLEX 2000 is also effective on the over 30 Lanthanide and Actinide metals. Of particular importance, METAPLEX 2000 will not remove the alkaline earth metals such as Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium. When contaminated liquid waste streams contain these elements in high concentration, no METAPLEX 2000 is consumed or wasted by their presence. Only heavy metal complexing will occur.

METAPLEX 2000 is available in quantities of 1, 4, 20, 208 and 1000KG.
