Innovation with a purpose

Camston Wrather is a pioneering science and engineering firm that specializes in extracting valuable resources from electronic waste through cutting-edge Green Tech. Our expertise lies in the recovery of sustainable materials like precious metals and polymers. Beyond Waste is at the core of our mission. We’ve created a next-generation recycling center that can reuse and reclaim polymers from Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), which will stabilize manufacturers' supply chains through domestic sourcing.









It All Started with Six Coffee Grinders

In the early days, friends Mark Evans and Aaron Kamenash embarked on a mission to reclaim abandoned mines in California, facing challenges like scorching heat and encounters with wildlife. Amidst these trials, an innovative idea emerged. Aaron proposed the concept of urban mining, focusing on e-waste, particularly printed circuit boards.

The hero of this story

Transitioning from the mining field to a new base – Mark's expansive garage – the duo delved into a meticulous journey of trial and error. Armed with coffee grinders to shred circuit board pieces, they soon realized the magnitude of materials they needed. Through perseverance, they crafted a process that successfully liberated precious metals from electronic devices.

As the years unfolded, Camston Wrather evolved into a thriving enterprise, showcasing the resilience and ingenuity that shaped its inception, making it the successful company it is today.
