Chimet is the leading international company in the recovery and refining of precious metals. Chimet’s historical departments are the Ash melting-refining and Metal Bank departments, although in recent years the company has followed policies regarding recovery and recycling that have led to the establishment of the Ecological and Waste Disposal Division. The business, which now has fifty years of experience behind it, started off as an internal Division of Unoaerre, the first goldsmith company in Arezzo and the most important company of its kind in the world.


Chimet’s mission is clear and precise: to recover and refine precious metals from waste made by the industrial manufactures, so as to facilitate the recycling in the production production of goldsmiths, catalysts, thick film and chemical products. At the same time, the company undertakes to dispose with the utmost care, in compliance with current legislation, the wastes that derive from recovering processes. The regfining process can last from three days to some weeks and allows Chimet to recover and refine tons of precious metals (gold, silver, platinum, palladium, ruthenium, iridium, rhodium) waste from electronic, photographic, galvanic, pharmaceuticals, chemical, petrochemical and goldsmith industries.
