Excellence in refining

In today's industrial society, the use of different metals has increased tremendously and industrial residues and end-of-life products are becoming more and more complex. To compete with this increasing demand and complexity, Umicore Precious Metals Refining has expanded its operations in Hoboken, Belgium. Our processes are based on complex lead/copper/nickel metallurgy, using these base metals as collectors for precious metals and other metals.
