Precious metals are naturally occurring, but very rare metal resources. They are used in many ways, across a range of industries to improve the quality of everyday life within consumer and industrial products as well as pharmaceutical and medical products.
As the precious metal used in these every day items is an expensive and scarce resource, their recovery, recycling and re-use is essential to maintain long term global sustainability. In addition, the economics of any process that utilises precious metals is key to profit and growth.
At Johnson Matthey, our core business remains recycling material for future use.
