Recycling and Recovering Precious & Specialty Metals
Umicore Precious Metals Refining operates the world's most sophisticated precious metals recycling facility. We recover 20 precious and non-ferrous metals from industrial residues, used electronic scrap, automotive and industrial catalysts and fuel cells.
In today's industrial society, the use of different metals has increased tremendously and industrial residues and end-of-life products are becoming more and more complex. To compete with this increasing demand and complexity, Umicore Precious Metals Refining has expanded its operations in Hoboken, Belgium. Our processes are based on complex lead/copper/nickel metallurgy, using these base metals as collectors for precious metals and other metals.
