About TMC the metals Co Inc
TMC the metals company Inc., formerly Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corp., is a deep-sea minerals exploration company focused on the collection, processing and refining of polymetallic nodules found on the seafloor of the Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean (CCZ).The CCZ is a zone of abyssal plains and other formations in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, with a length of approximately 4,500 miles. The Company is focused on metal recovery from polymetallic nodules to support demand from battery and electric vehicle production through the development of a process that produces metals from the polymetallic nodules with zero solid processing waste. Its products include nickel sulfate, cobalt sulfate, copper and manganese. The Company's polymetallic nodule collection reduces the environmental and social impact of primary metal production, and a flow sheet that it expects could lead to the substantial reduction or elimination of tailings.
