JGI-HYDROMETAL group is made up of nearly 200 employees. Every day, these players in the circular economy mobilize their skills and motivation to offer a valuable alternative to the technical landfilling of waste.
The women and the men of the JGI-HYDROMETAL Group contribute in an innovative way to the development of sustainable solutions and to a reduction in the consumption of natural resources.
Together, on a daily basis, we encourage team spirit, enthusiasm, and the desire to work in an inspiring environment.
We aim to bring to the market the purest products and by-products, subject to strict quality controls, framed by standards and certifications of excellence. Our processes are subject to continuous improvement.
Alternative to landfill
By reprocessing waste, JGI-HYDROMETAL offers a valuable alternative to landfilling waste, which may contain critical substances for the development of a forward-looking European strategy.
In this way, we contribute to reducing the environmental impact of human activities and to the rationalization of resources.
Low CO2 emissions
The reprocessing of non-ferrous metals by hydrometallurgical means significantly reduces CO2 emissions from industry. It avoids the extraction and processing of minerals, which are extremely CO2-emitting and energy-intensive.
In addition, JGI-HYDROMETAL processes are subject to continuous improvement, particularly in terms of efficiency, energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Discover the backstage of the group
The materials of tomorrow are imagined today. Many Belgian and European research projects are underway within JGI-HYDROMETAL.
Recycling of rare earths contained in our technological products, recycling of batteries and electric vehicles, residues from permanent magnets, recovery of waste to produce new high-performance optical fibers, etc. The technological and ecological challenges are numerous. Our R&D team studies more than 100 materials and 50 front metals on average per year. Each member of JGI-HYDROMETAL is a daily actor of change, a daily actor of positive and sustainable solutions.
