The GMR Gesellschaft für Metallrecycling mbH was founded in 1991. The company has 12 employees and operates worldwide. In 2001 the sales amount to 1.5 Mio. Euros.
The company's main focus is the environmentally-orientated recycling of used mercury and various waste products containing mercury. The aim is to recover this mercury as a raw material, to clean it and to return it to the economy as mercury of the highest purity.
Additionally the company began successful vacuum-treatment and immobilization of naturally radioactive slurries and residues containing mercury as well as with the production of precious metal concentrates out of waste products and residues containing precious metals.
In Leipzig GMR operates 4 BImSchG (Bundesimmissionsschutzgesetz) approved vacuum-recycling plants varying sizes including the largest vacuum recycling pant in the world with a capacity of 3 m³. Currently between 500-1000 kg/d of waste products can be recycled at this facility.
Based on our years of experience the GMR Gesellschaft für Metallrecycling mbH is a sought-out partner in this field.
