Umicore’s closed loop business model is based on our unique competence and in recycling. Today, we can recover over 20 different metals. 

We can recycle our customers’ residues and production scrap in order to help them maximize their efficiency and we then transform the recovered materials into new products. We also address the most complex residue streams: from industrial residues from the smelting industry to recyclables such as end-of-life electronic scrap, spent industrial catalysts and automotive catalysts. The metallurgy and technology used in Umicore is found nowhere else and makes us one of the most flexible and advanced metals recyclers on the planet. 

We are further leveraging Umicore’s leadership in closed loop solutions.
