Raw Materials & Recycling Business Division

Recycling nonferrous scrap and used electronic devices

Leveraging a nationwide network that includes the JX Nippon Mining & Metals Group, JX Metal Trading collects copper, precious metal and other nonferrous scrap and sells them as raw materials to copper/copper alloy and specialty steel plants and nonferrous metal smelters. In partnership with a range of processing facilities, the Company recycles numerous valuable metals extracted from used cell phones, personal computers, home appliances and industrial waste. We also import copper and precious metal scrap using our in-house customs clearance capabilities.

Waste processing and recycling

The Company also reduces the volume of unrecyclable waste and makes it non-polluting by acting as coordinator between the discharging plants and processing plants. The JX Nippon Mining & Metals Group's waste recycling system has earned high praise because it is a zero-emission system that converts post-intermediate processing residue to slag, creating no secondary waste, in addition to allowing recovery of valuable waste materials,.
