Refining of scrap containing gold, silver, platinum, palladium or rhodium

ESG is able to recover precious metals from practically any waste that contains these.

In addition to traditional scrap, we therefore also refine:

  • precious metal-containing paint residues, gold paste, silver paste, thermal compounds
  • precious metal-containing powders, swarf and polish residues
  • precious metal-containing salts (silver cyanide, gold salt etc.)
  • gold and silver gilt from metallising systems
  • industrial catalytic converters that contain precious metals (Pd, Pt, Rh, Ag)
  • fuel cells (Pt, Ru, Pd, Au)
  • pacemakers and defibrillators
  • thermocouples, platinum laboratory apparatus
  • silver solder (L-AG20, L-AG40, L-AG50 etc.)
  • slags
  • sweeps
  • cleaning cloths
  • precious metal baths
  • precious metal filters (filter cartridges, gold resin etc.)
  • and many more materials.


Please don't hesitate to ask if we can take on unusual refining requests.
