From waste to raw material
Aunexum collects scrap gold, such as old rings and chains, from about one hundred and fifty jewellers with its company BGP Edelmetaal. This demolition gold is processed by sister company Elephant Refinery that refines ‘scrap’ into raw materials such as gold and silver. Elephant Refinery also recycles old electronics (such as printed circuit boards), industrial (residual) products and dental gold, which often contains various other rare raw materials in addition to gold and silver.
