Process Reliability you can count on

Like a well oiled machine

Collection of materials containing precious metals, such as end-of-life catalytic converters from car dismantlers.

The materials are then picked up and classified by our experts.

The precious-metal-bearing carrier material and the non-precious-metal-bearing steel casing are separated.

The precious-metal-bearing components are then ground to a fine homogeneous powder.

The subsequent sampling process is used to collect a small representative sample of material on the basis of which a valuation is made for several tonnes of material.

The material from the homogeneous powder is enriched in the pyrometallurgical refining process and high-purity precious metal is obtained.

This is followed by the physical provision of the precious metals (as bars, sponge, powder). We offer a range of comprehensive services in precious metal management – from a precious metal account to precious metal trading.

Ultimately, the precious metals recovered are used for new, mostly industrial purposes, such as in mobile phones or catalytic converters.
