Precious Metals Refining

Analytical material evaluation

Achieving high recovery rates

Electric and Electronic Equipments, like printed circuit boards, contain a wide range of elements and various precious metals, such as gold, silver and palladium. The refine of these materials is the final phase during the product life cycle or its recycling chain.

The overall efficiency of this refining process is determined by the previous recycling steps – dismantling, sorting and separation.

High degree of homogenity is required to achieve high rates of recovery.

On the basis of our enhanced expertise and specialised knowledge on the correct separation and homogenisation of recyclables, we can guarantee our customers the highest possible level of value for their WEEE materials.

We offer our customers individual and regarding the analytical quantity totally variable refining service. Our refining partners are specialised and approved melters, but also partner laboratories all over Europe.

Analysis and Sampling Service

Precious metal analysis requires high quality standards, as they are the accounting base for precious metal-containing materials. Using modern and high-tech methods for analysis in our laboratories, we offer accurate valuations of your high precious metal containing materials.

Examples of these materials are

  • Printed Circuit Boards
  • Stamping Waste or punching-strips
  • Industrial Waste from production
  • Slags
  • Tin dross
  • Wire or
  • Pins/Contacts

With our many years of experience in this field and our highest quality standards, we are able to determine representative analysis reliably and accurately from the input material. These analyse reports are the accounting base for precious metal-containing materials – from small quantities in 100 gram range up to several tons.

Stages of raw material recovery

WEEE Recycling Chain

The WEEE recycling chain consists of different, subsequent steps, which are collecting, dismantling, shredding and refining. The success of material recovery depends largely on the correct and conscious treatment during the previous steps.
