The world is full of materials in use.
Re-covery, Re-cycling and Re-use of platinum group metals (PGMs) from End-of-Life products in the development and manufacturing of new products are paramount to support sustainability and circular economy.
CRIMAREC is a development company, with the pupose of upscaling and validate the technology knowledge and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) created by knowledge institutions.
The technology is a process of recovering metals, especially platinum group metals (PGMs) from various sources of scrap materials through a unique hydro-electrochemical process, as an alternative technology to the current pyrometallurgical method.
We strive for environmentally friendly and sustainable recovery, recycling and re-use of precious metals. Promoting circular economy and material flow among different industries, and accelerating green transition and independence of fossil fuels.
We work in accordance with UNs Sustainable Development Goals: 7, 9 12 and 13:
The main focus of the company is to recovery platinum, palladium, ruthenium, iridium and rhodium from End-of-Life products from e.g., catalyzed diesel particle filters based on silicon carbide, diesel oxidation catalyst and three-way catalyst based on cordierite as well as fuel cell and electrolyser membrane assembly.
