GMR Gesellschaft für Metallrecycling mbH was founded in 1991. Today, the company employs a team of 12 and operates around the world. By 2001, we were already recording an annual turnover of 1.5 million EUR. The company specialises in the environmentally friendly recycling of used mercury and every type of waste containing mercury, with the aim of recovering the precious raw material, cleaning it and returning it to the economic cycle as mercury of the highest purity grade. The company has recently seen success in the vacuum treatment and immobilisation of naturally radioactive slurries and residues that contain mercury and in the production of precious metal concentrates out of waste products and residues containing precious metals. From its base in Leipzig, the company operates four vacuum recycling plants of varying capacities, each of them compliant with the German Emissions Protection Act (BImSchG).
