PGM fact sheets
Our fact sheets cover the different stages of the supply chain (primary production/mining, secondary production/fabrication and recycling) as well as autocatalysts as key application.
Find out more on the PGM industry and the sustainable use of the metals by reading our new Environmental Profile of PGMs. It presents basic information about PGMs (production, facts, applications) and explains the goal and scope of the second IPA Life Cycle Assessment Study (2017 data) which was conducted to measure the environmental footprint of our metals.
The LCA Fact Sheet summarizes the main technical and methodological information and presents the main outcomes.
