IONIX RE electrowinning technology from Global Ionix is a patented process is based on the use of rotating electrodes to allow recovery of metals from process solutions in lower concentrations and enable economical recovery of a wider variety of metals from solution. According to the company, the rotating electrode works by creating turbulence, thus increasing mass transport of ions in solution and effectively reducing the diffusion barrier—the electrochemical resistance to plate-out.

Use of the system is said to significantly decrease sludge production and allow easy recovery of valuable metals while reducing waste treatment costs.
