Chimet’s philosophy is aimed at optimising production processes, obtaining the highest level of yield in terms of quality and quantity, while ensuring the safeguarding of the environment.


Chimet’s mission is clear and precise: to recover precious metals from industrial process residues, in order to facilitate recycling for the production of catalysts, thick film and chemicals. At the same time the company disposes of waste derived from the recovery processes as carefully as possible and in compliance with current regulations.

The extraction process may last between three days and a few weeks, and it allows Chimet to recover tons of precious metals (gold, silver, palladium, platinum, rhodium, ruthenium and iridium) from the waste produced by the following industries: electronic, photographic, galvanic, pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, as well as gold.


To disperse waste materials in the environment is not only uncivilised, it is unproductive, and Chimet certainly knows this, so much so that it has invested in research and development to the point where it has attained numerous certifications.

The benefits are not only financial, because above all the environmental savings in terms of raw materials, energy and the impact on the territory have to be considered.

In the present day Chimet is a company known at international level for its reliability, and its reputation continues to increase, above all in the catalysts, thick film and chemical products sectors.

Research, investment and continuous development will be the cornerstone of Chimet’s philosophy in the future, and the company is already ready to face the challenges that industry has in store for it.

Chimet’s waste has some of the most innovative and efficient waste disposal systems in the world. Emissions monitoring is conducted in real time and data are available to the public after the validation of ARPAT.


Who said?

"..the objective is to reduce the production of waste, and just like the incentive for the separation of rubbish for disposal purposes, these are important signals of a correct environmental policy, although rubbish should also be eliminated..."
