Rhodium

Hardness, endurance, applicability - these are some of the reasons why we refine it.

Formats and purity

Sponge

Sponge

Powder with homogeneous particle size for catalysts, jewels, the jewels industry and much more.

Salts

Salts

Rhodium sulfate in basic solution, ready-to-use and recovery solution.

Rhodium output forms

After refining, metals sourced from spent catalysts and jewels are supplied in physical form with a purity of at least 99.95% in the format ordered and chosen by the client among the available range. Delivery of rhodium is carried out by the most trustworthy courier services which are fast and equipped to transport valuables, both in Italy and all around the world.

We purchase rhodium recovered from supplied materials, granting the best applicable purchase prices. We are able to handle all orders and build a long-lasting relationship in a reliable manner, given the high business volume that we have developed all around the world.

We have been working with metal accounts for years, i.e., tools that have been granted by international credit institutions from London, New York and Zurich, which guarantee the highest speed and trust when transferring virtual valuables from one side of the world to another, for gold, silver, platinum and palladium.

99,95% – guaranteed minimum purity

We also recover very low quantities

We employ applied techniques and technology for rhodium recovery from all kinds of scraps, even low-grade materials. In our facilities in Castelluccio and Valenza, we are equipped to recover high volumes of rhodium every month.

How we recover rhodium

We carry out pyrometallurgical processes in our facilities in Castelluccio (province of Arezzo) and Valenza (province of Alessandria). This technology is complex and constantly evolving: it is the result of large investments, such as the new foundry 4.0*, opened in 2021, as well as experience and research. We work alongside technology partners that lead us to potential innovations and improved production efficiency, with the objective of using as few resources as possible in our processes.

Preliminary preparation

Preliminary preparation

Calcination, roasting and milling. We own 13 static furnaces where we process each batch individually.

Preparing the sample

Preparing the sample

Blending lasts at least 30 minutes and allows obtaining 30g samples that can represent batches weighing up to 3,000kg.

Data for each step

Data for each step

Analyses are carried out all along the process, as well as optimal, analytical protocols tailored to the quantity, thanks to state-of-the-art instrumentation.

The foundry 4.0

The foundry 4.0

Rotary furnaces, TBRC and converting furnaces that allow obtaining a metal block free from impurities from smelting.

Controlled refining

Controlled refining

Hydrometallurgical treatments to obtain reaction intermediates. The recipe is detected automatically and is specific to the material.

Formats

Formats

Sponge and salts: a careful transformation process allows preserving the high purity of rhodium all the way through the process.

Eligible materials

Strict parameters, technology support and extended control system, starting from the shipping source.

Rhodium analysis

High-pressure digesters, state-of-the-art ICP-OES, ED-XRF and WD-XRF

Analysis protocols tailored to the quantity

Applied analysis prior to the arrival of the material and during each processing step

Analysis protocols, even during the sample preparation, change depending on the quantity and composition of the sample. Given the very high value of rhodium, we sometimes apply different protocols and the result is only taken into consideration if all obtained values match. The final quantification is always carried out by ICP.
