Many may be familiar with platinum, but platinum powder might be less known. Platinum, a precious metal, not only shines in the jewelry industry but is also extensively used in industrial applications. So, how should platinum powder be recycled? Let’s explore the methods and processes of platinum powder recovery together.

Platinum powder generally originates from industrial waste, which could be from factories or laboratories. Typically, after obtaining platinum powder, we conduct a simple screening to remove most of the impurities. After the removal of impurities, we use chemical methods to separate platinum from the remaining impurities not screened out initially.

The separated platinum needs to be refined further through electrolysis and other methods to purify it further. If the purity is still not satisfactory, these steps are repeated until the spectral analysis data meets the standards.

Today’s share on platinum powder recovery ends here. I hope everyone can gain some new knowledge from this and that it inspires more thoughts on the recycling and utilization of resources, considering also the implications of platinum metals prices.
