At a time characterised by growth and a constant increase in the world’s population, it is becoming increasingly difficult to meet the needs of the population and industry. The increasing scarcity of resources and exploitation of raw materials place a great strain on our environment and the worldwide climate. Therefore, it should be obvious that we must operate in a sustainable manner, and to take into account both ecological and social issues, in addition to economic interests. The recycling of raw materials, particularly of precious metals, which accrue in a manufacturing process or which are at the end of their life cycle, helps to protect natural resources. By saving primary raw materials through recycling, the energy consumption during manufacturing is reduced, and it would be irresponsible not to exploit this. Protection of the environment is a cornerstone of our business.
During the more than 200 years of its company history Johnson Matthey has developed unparalleled skills in analysis, recycling and converting precious metals, and thereby possesses the basis for one of the most important services that PGM refining offers.
The further expansion and modernisation of the already existing, extremely efficient, refining unit provides the required basis for the increased demand and guarantees the best results for recycling.
Johnson Matthey accepts all forms of industrial waste and residues which contain recoverable gold, silver and platinum group metals, in order to enable their return to the precious metal loop. These valuable waste materials are as varied as the industries and processes that engender them. Ongoing research and development ensure the use of the latest technology to this end.
We would be pleased to answer your questions on transport, waste disposal and recycling of precious metal-containing waste. Please talk to us personally. There's no substitute for a personal discussion!
