Metal Recovery & Recycling

The unique physical and chemical properties of precious metals have led to their use in a wide range of applications across many industries. However, increasing global competitive forces are driving the need to improve both operational efficiency and return on investment. Combining this with political and social pressure to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing activities, many companies are seeking new ways to maximise their returns from their operations whilst at the same time reducing their impact on the environment. 


Meeting the challenge of recovering valuable precious metals both from solid metal scrap and liquid waste streams to be recycled into industrial use forms the basis for a thriving precious metal refining industry. By working closely with PhosphonicS to recover more precious metals from scrap and liquid wastes streams, companies can further increase their returns from such operations.


Recovering precious metals in the precious metal refining industry


Many precious metal refining plants use well established extractive metallurgical techniques to recover and purify the precious metals from a wide range of sources, including scrap jewellery and other domestic items, scrap from electronics and aerospace manufacturers as well as solid and liquid waste from the chemical and pharmaceutical processing industries. These refining plants will often produce a liquid waste stream which contains low concentrations of precious metals.


PhosphonicS offers a range of cost effective, easy to use solutions, tailored to your recover needs and helps you further increase your returns.
