The Platinum Group Metals, or PGMs, including Platinum, Palladium, Ruthenium and Rhodium, and together with other precious metals such as gold, silver and rhenium are widely used in components and catalysts to create an enormous number of products in a wide variety of industries. These industries include petroleum refining, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, nitric acid, electronic, and mining industries…and many more. The Sabin Metal Group of companies specializes in recovering and refining of these precious metals from spent catalysts. Using customized programs designed to ensure accuracy in sampling and analysis for individual catalyst types, Sabin maximizes the customers’ returned value with its cutting-edge technologies. Recovering precious metals from spent catalyst turns customers’ by-products or waste into assets. It allows Sabin to form partnerships with hundreds of companies throughout these various markets.
