Smelting Capacity Expansion

Expansion of Smelting Facilities

Nippon PGM Co. Ltd. (NPGM) has completed Phase 1 of the expansion project of its original state-of-the-art ROSE Process, by fully commissioning a new electric furnace and its peripheral installations, dedicated to spent autocatalyst processing.

As of November 2016, the new smelting furnace, in Akita Prefecture – Japan, is on a successful smelting campaign and completion of Phase 2 expansion is scheduled to be in Summer 2017.

Since its establishment in 1991, NPGM has acknowledged the importance of PGM recycling from spent autocatalysts and strongly believe that its importance will remain paramount. Therefore, we set our goal to increase our recycling operations.

We will continue investing in new facilities, by proactively increasing collection locations, not only in the Europe or North America but, in all over the world. We will also continue investing in new technologies compatible with changing materials and fully satisfying the needs of our valued customers in the future.
