Copper, gold, platinum, silver and others
Precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum - are found in a large number of places, many of which you would never expect them to be. It is for this reason that a substantial amount of this precious metal is simply wasted and destroyed, when in actual fact it could be recovered and reused, saving industries a lot of money.
In recent years, precious metal recovery has become a big recycling business, as many companies have invested in specialist equipment to salvage and recover much of the gold, silver and platinum which is often lost in a wide variety of waste products.
Precious metal recovery from different sources
Gold, for example, is found and recovered from computer components, wires, pastes and ceramics.
Silver is found as a waste product in the photography industry, amongst films and inks, in sludges, and in pastes and ceramics.
Platinum, palladium, copper, brass and nickel are all recovered from all kinds of products in a wide variety of industries, from batteries, catalysts and wires, to demolished buildings and factories.
Materials and equipment to buy and sell
