Metals, they are all around us and make our life comfortable. When products reach end of life they are collected for recycling but some also end up in our waste. When most metals are recovered a solid waste stream is left behind which still contain valuable metals like copper and precious metals. Some waste streams could contain more gold than the average gold mine. These waste streams end-up on a landfill or are used as building material. The company Urban Metals is dedicated to provide a solution to recover valuable metals from solid residues.
