Technological infrastructure is hurting the global ecosystem

The mining extraction of elements used to build electronic devices is one of the main causes of damage to the global ecosystem.

The problem is exacerbated by the increasing amount of electronic waste our society produces every day, without responsible management.


The research for environmental solutions

The issue of recycling electronic waste is becoming increasingly urgent. Over 80% of end-of-life consumer electronics end up in landfills, contaminating the surrounding environment with heavy metals and other substances.

However, these same elements are essential for innovative production.

The action of Ecomet Refining and the circular economy

Recycling and recovery will increasingly play a crucial role in a sustainable world, and Ecomet Refining is ready to ecologically recycle and recover twelve types of precious metals defined as critical raw materials, thus contributing to the circular economy.
