Sustainable Precious Metal Refining

Gannon & Scott is the leader in our industry in its commitment to sustainable precious metal recovery and refining. By definition, secondary precious metal refining is a recycling activity that preserves and protects natural resources. But for us sustainability means so much more. It means protection of the environment by operating all our plants as "zero discharge" facilities and utilizing the most comprehensive and advanced pollution control systems. It also means being committed to generating renewable energy for a smaller carbon footprint and valuing positive corporate social responsibilities.


White Paper;Meeting the Challenge of Sustainable Precious Metal Recovery

This white paper discusses how Gannon & Scott is advancing PM recovery with a thermal reduction system that uses a state-of-the art pollution control process. It can efficiently recover PMs from even low percentage hazardous and non-hazardous materials converting them into a marketable PM bearing commodity with minimal environmental impact. The pollution control process scrubs exhaust streams and prevents the formation of hazardous byproducts in a multistage, comprehensive system.
