A key element of the precious metal catalysed chemical industry is the recovery of the metal from the process residues.
Johnson Matthey Refining & Recycling recovers precious metals from catalyst intermediates, process catalysts and other production residues that contain precious metals.
We recover precious metals from may supported catalysts including carbon based powder and paste catalysts, granular and pelleted catalysts, activated alumina powder, silica, calcium carbonate, barium sulphate and zeolite catalyst supports.
Other materials contaminated with precious metals such as wipes, filter clothes or distillation residues can also be accepted for recovery.
As the largest global full-service refiner of precious metals, our services, technologies and refineries represent the most comprehensive and advanced precious metal refining facilities in the world.
