:: Umicore to Upgrade Precious Metals Plant


Belgium's material technology group Umicore is to invest another Euro 100 million in its advanced precious metals recycling plant at Hoboken, thereby boosting capacity by approximately 40%.

According to Umicore, this major financial injection will allow the facility's smelter and blast furnace to be updated to treat 500 000 tonnes of material per year. A further expansion of the Hoboken plant might follow after 2015, it adds.

In order to maintain long-term growth, Umicore says it will dedicate itself to research into opportunities and technological developments related to the worldwide battery market.
