RECYCLING OF PRECIOUS METALS

RECOVERY. TRANSPARENT. FAIR. EFFICIENT.

The recovery of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium and iridium from precious metals bearing wastes and residues of various origins is a core competence of WIELAND – and the basis for the trust of our customers. As a recycling specialist, we regain your values in-house: with partially patented state-of-the-art recycling technologies, fast, transparent, with maximum yield and environmentally friendly. As one of the oldest Gold- and Silver refineries in Pforzheim we are today one of the first addresses in Germany for all services in the field of precious metal separation. We also support you with the latest analytic and sampling methods. As a certified waste management company, we are also your competent partner for all questions of logistics and waste management. This applies to international waste transports as well as to the transport and treatment of hazardous wastes. The result: precious metals of the highest purity.

TECHNOLOGY

UP-TO-DATE. ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND. FUTURE ORIENTED.

The thermal and chemical recycling processes used at WIELAND are based on state-of-the-art technological standards in recovery and environmental technology. In part, we have developed and patented these procedures ourselves. In this way, we guarantee our customers a highly efficient recovery of precious metals from all kinds of fusible waste, precious metal-containing liquids, dusts, ashes or sludges – profitable and ecologically sound. We also process customer-specific, highly complex recycling goods with individual wet-chemical processing methods. The result are high-purity precious metals according to ASTM standard or better, which can be used for new products without restriction.
