overview

Continued technological innovations as well as rapid economic growth have resulted in large amounts of electronic waste. Nearly all technology devices on the market today contain some type of precious metal. If you manufacture a High-Performance product, chances are excellent that it contains precious metals that can be recovered. Gold, silver, palladium and platinum can be found in most electronic components. 

Recovering precious metals is challenging because of the complex material makeup within many devices. These materials can be both valuable and harmful. That combination is why it is important to work with a precious metals program that understands not only the optimal value recovery methods, but also has the most current environmental processes in place.
