SPECIALIST PRECIOUS METAL REFINING & RECOVERY
All Waste Matters offer specialist precious metal refining services to leading companies in a number of industry sectors.
Precious metal refining or Metallurgy is the process of purifying an impure material into a pure one. Precious metal refining is very different from smelting because it does not involve a core chemical change of the raw material. In refining, the final material is always chemically identical to the original material but in a purer form.

Which Precious Metals can be refined?
While refining is predominately used for Lead and Copper, precious metal refining from products such as Silver and Gold are also purified in this way.
We are both silver refiners and gold refiners and precious metals recovered by All Waste Matters are usually done so using the Phyrolysis method which solidifies noble-metalliferous metals, melting them to become cider and then pouring which finally separates the precious metals.
During these uncertain economic times investors have fallen back to the more stable commodities market, with precious metal prices (Gold and Silver in particular) rocketing as a result.
It is also important for manufacturers to be aware of procedures in their processes which may generate precious metal scrap suitable for recycling. By using All Waste Matters as your precious metal refiner you may be able to turn these seemingly insignificant scraps into profit for your company.
