A unique research centre

In order to identify new material flows and to recover precious metals from waste materials more efficiently, we have established a research and development centre in Lahti, Finland. Our research laboratory studies and tests new ways of sorting materials. Our independent research centre guarantees that our expertise and know-how stay at the top of the industry and sharpens our competitive edge as one of the leading recycling companies in the world.

Our Research Centre is accredited by the FINAS accreditation service, and meets the requirements of the standard SFS-EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2017 regarding fuel testing.

Self-developed processing machinery

Our recycling processes are based on equipment and machinery we have developed in-house. Our affiliate RecTec Engineering designs, manufactures and installs equipment and facilities used in metal recycling processes and environmental maintenance work.

Extensive collaboration with the world of research

In addition to our own research efforts, we collaborate extensively with universities and participate in numerous joint projects across the world of research and our partner network. Close collaboration has enabled us to produce scientific, high-quality research results.
