Industrial position


GEM is an advocator of the industrial philosophy that "Limited Resources, Unlimited Recycling" and a pioneer of exploiting urban mines in China. For the past 20 years, GEM has been pursuing the goal of peaking carbon dioxide emissions and achieve carbon neutrality by exploiting urban mines, developing new energy materials, and establishing a resource recycling mode and a clean energy material mode. GEM has tackled a series of worldwide technical challenges such as the waste battery recycling technology, the green treatment of electronic waste, the recycling technology of scrapped vehicles, and the core technology of ternary power battery materials; made breakthroughs in key technical bottlenecks in the green treatment and recycling of waste batteries, electronic wastes, and scrapped vehicles; constructed a globally-advanced new energy full-life-cycle value chain, a recycling value chain of cobalt, tungsten, and other rare metals, the recycling value chain of electronic wastes and plastics, as well as other resource recycling modes and new energy recycling modes. GEM has established 16 waste recycling and new energy material parks in 11 provinces and municipalities including Hubei, Hunan, Guangdong, Jiangxi, Henan, Tianjin, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, and Fujian, covering 3000 kilometers and establishing cooperative relationship with nearly 500 million Chinese citizens in waste recycling. Its footprints of green recycling cover the entire China. With successful presence in South Africa, South Korea, and Indonesia, it radiates the whole world with green technologies.

In China, GEM recycles more than 10% of all discarded electronic wastes, more than 10% of all scrapped waste batteries (excluding lead-acid cells), and more than 4% of all scrapped cars. The cobalt resource produced from recycling exceeds the produced quantity of raw cobalt in China. The nickel resource produced from recycling accounts for more than 6% of the produced quantity of raw nickel in China. The tungsten resource produced from recycling accounts for more than 5% of the produced quantity of raw tungsten in China. Each year, the company disposes of more than 5 million tons of wastes, and recycles more than 30 kinds of scare resources, such as cobalt, nickel, copper, tungsten, gold, silver, palladium, rhodium, germanium, rare earth, along with ultrafine powder materials, power battery materials for new energy vehicles, and many other high-tech products. It is now a globally leading company along the supply chain of the cemented carbide industry and the new energy industry. With practical actions, GEM has proven that resource recycling can play a critical role in the national economy and the development of strategic emerging industries. GEM has been awarded a torrent of honorable titles, including the National Circular Economy Pilot Enterprise, the National Circular Economy Educational Demonstration Base, the National Urban Mines Demonstration Base, the National Green Factory, the National Technology Innovation Demonstration Enterprise, the National Intellectual Property Demonstration Enterprise, the National Primary and Secondary School Environmental Education Social Practice Base, and the National Eco-environmental Popular Science Base. Rewards earned by GEM include the 2018 Davos "Global Circular Economy Multinational Award" and the 2020 "Paulson Prize for Sustainability - Green Innovation Award". It has been recognized as one of the globally leading green and low-carbon enterprises as a remarkable and typical practicer for the development of China's recycling society and green concept. By doing this, GEM lifts China's capacity in recycling economy to a world level and makes positive contributions to the construction of a recycling society and a green and low-carbon industrial mode.

On July 22, 2013 when the General Secretary Xi Jinping visited GEM (Wuhan) Recycling Industrial Park, he highly praised GEM's recycling mode and said, "Turning waste into wealth through recycling is a promising sunrise industry. Wastes are misplaced resources. Turning rubbish into resources and transforming waste into wealth are not only science but also arts. Hoping that GEM will make persistent efforts in the future!"
