Purchasing precious metals

We process/purchase the precious metals bearing materials from individuals as well as legal entities. You can rely on our professional attitude, evaluation methods, first-class equipment and maximum transparency.

Refining at Safina

We offer individual, tailor-made services, professional evaluation methods and the best refining technologies. Thanks to our refining equipment, we can ensure the highest possible purity of metals are obtained from various precious metal bearing materials.

Why are we refining?

  • By turning precious metal bearing waste into raw materials, we put it back to the production process, thus giving new life to precious metals and helps to minimize negative impacts on the environment
  • The refining process reduces the need for raw materials, greatly reduces the use of energy and conserves resources that are associated with extracting, refining, transporting, and processing industrial catalysts. This means less air, water, and soil pollution, as well as the preservation of natural resources
  • The refining process helps you valorize your precious metal bearing waste effectively and retrieve it back into company assets.

Environmentally friendly procedures

Our main priorities include respect, responsible approach and transparent environmental policy.
As part of the implementation and maintenance of the environmental management system pursuant to ČSN EN ISO 14 001, we minimize negative impacts on the environment.
