RECOM’s logistics service begins with the preparation of correct storage and the necessary containers for transport. If required we can pick up the shipment and transport it, according to the law regulating shipments of waste materials, for processing in our company. The value of the shipment is insured from the time of pick up to the time of the final settlement. Above all, materials which come under the hazardous goods classification will be shipped in specially equipped vehicles. Our extensive experience and knowledge regarding the regulations in these cases can save the customer time and effort while at the same time give assurance of safety. This service is offered whether the goods are to be shipped within Germany, the EU or from other countries outside of the EU. According to the properties of the goods to be recycled, RECOM will develop a tailor-made recycling concept for the residues and waste materials. This will encompass not only the recovery of the precious metal content but also the environmentally correct treatment and disposal of any remaining waste.

If required, RECOM will organise the total transport for the shipment from the customer to our company, whether the customer is in Germany, the EU or from countries outside the EU.

Customers from outside the EU can rely on RECOM to organise all customs clearances. When shipping hazardous goods we will help in advising you of the necessary notification measures required together with all approval processes necessary under the Basel Agreement.

Thermal production

For a great number of materials a thermal process is initially required. RECOM has one of the most high-performance incineration plants available which meet the latest German Emission Laws (BImShV 17), which represents the highest level of approval for this type of plant. Available too, are several induction furnaces used for homogenising during the melting processes in which metals and alloys reach a temperature of 1,800°C. For materials which still have a high water content various drying plant is available with differing volume capacities.

 

Mechanical production

Almost all shipments of waste are mechanically processed – either directly or using thermal treatment. Using tried and trusted state-of-the-art technologies such as special shredders, granulate cutters, hammer mills, ball mills, mixing equipment, magnetic separators and a sieving system, a crushed and homogenous material is produced.

The valuation of the content of the shipment depends on the quality of the sample, the importance of which gives an exact representational value of the total amount and which forms the basis for any precious metal content settlement between the customer and RECOM.

Using a standardised process, several samples are taken from each batch and sealed. One of these goes to an independent laboratory to determine the precious metal content. Other samples are always held at RECOM in their archives. If required, the customer can have further samples made available.

As the recovery value for the precious metals often depends on the number after the point, the quality of our service is often the element which adds value.

The samples taken in RECOM’s own laboratory are analysed for precious metal content by an independent and specialised institute.

Decades of experience and knowledge together with a team of chemists on the one hand and the use of the most modern technology on the other, guarantees an extremely reliable value.

RECOM Services

  • Precise and separate processing of each batch!
  • Most modern production equipment
  • High level of environmental protection as well as work safety through highly efficient emission control equipment and filtration
  • Noise insulation etc.
  • Precise sampling system
  • Precious metal analyses using specialised, independent laboratories

Following presentation of the precious metal analysis a metal settlement can be made, mostly before the physical availability of the refined metal. This provides our customers, apart from the obvious time and liquidity advantages, the possibility of a more flexible arrangement for the precious metal.

Completely according to customers’ wishes it is possible to fix a day’s price with immediate payment, accrediting a metal account or the delivery of the precious metal in a physical form.

Our service offers all possibilities within the profession as well as financial instruments such as rate fixing, part payment before the settlement date or further transfer to manufacturers of new precious metal products.

Trading in precious metals is a special area which demands expertise. RECOM has many years of experience in trading in both local and international markets.
