Platinum is used in petroleum refineries in the processes known as reforming and isomerisation, which create the higher octane components for gasoline. Platinum is key to the production of gasoline - without it, refineries would not be able to produce enough gasoline to meet current requirements.

Johnson Matthey Refining & Recycling is able to process high volumes of reforming catalysts to efficiently recover the platinum. Our sampling and refining facilities offer the highest standards and experience in evaluation, analysis, customer support and metal return to you.

If you have any questions or comments, or of you would like to discuss a refining quote, please use our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
