Our contribution to the sustainable supply of precious metals

Precious metals are our passion. Our strong foundation is based on the values of our family-run company.

And that’s how we deal with our customers and business partners – with passion and expertise. We also place enormous value on cooperation based on trust and partnership, as well as on the accountability of each individual.

Every day we set out to prove that we are your first choice when it comes to the conservation of precious metals.

 

Process Reliability you can count on

Step 1

End-of-life

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

Step 2

Collection and classification

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

Step 3

Dismantling

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

Step 4

Homogenisation

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

Step 5

Sampling and value determination

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.

Step 6

Smelting

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

Step 7

Precious metals

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.

Step 8

Industrial usage, e.g. catalytic converters, mobile phones, jewellery and much more

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