GEM Co., Ltd. was registered and incorporated in Shenzhen on December 28, 2001 and listed on the SME Board (Small and Medium Enterprise Board) of Shenzhen Stock Exchange in January 2010, with a stock code 002340, a total capital stock of 4.784 billion shares, a net asset of RMB 10.458 billion, and the number of registered employees more than 5000.

For the past nineteen years, GEM has been devoted to developing cutting-edge recycling technologies and constantly expanding the scale of waste treatment by clinging to the industrial tenet that "resources are finite but recycling is infinite". It has set up three core recycling industrial clusters, that are the recycling cluster of waste batteries and rare metal waste like cobalt, nickel and tungsten, the recycling cluster of electronic wastes, and the recycling cluster of scrapped cars. GEM’s recycling business extends throughout China with a coverage of 3000 kilometers in eleven provinces and municipalities, including Guangdong, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Henan, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Tianjin, and Fujian. It boasts an annual waste treatment capacity of more than 4 million tons, and has established a cooperative relationship with 500 million people in waste treatment. Reaching out to the world with investments in South Africa, Indonesia, and South Korea, we are committed to creating a green industrial mode that connects Chinese enterprises to the Belt and Road initiative, actively engage in the global cooperation in waste recycling industry, and make efforts to become a great environment protection company in the 21st century.

The total amount of recycled waste resources of GEM is more than 4 million tons each year. More than 10% small waste batteries in China are recycled by GEM. The volume of cobalt resources recycled each year amounts to that of raw cobalts mined in China. The volume of tungsten resources recycled each year accounts for 5% of the raw tungsten resources mined in China. The annual amount of recycled germanium resources accounts for 6% of the global germanium output. The quantity of recycled cathode materials from lithium-ion batteries for re-manufacturing accounts for more than 20% of China’s market each year. The number of recycled discarded home appliances is more than 10 million sets each year, accounting for more than 10% of the whole capacity in China. The quantity of annually disposed scrapped circuit boards accounts for more than 20% of the whole capacity in China. 37 kinds of scarce resources such as cobalt, nickel, copper, tungsten, gold, silver, palladium, rhodium, germanium, indium, and rare earths, as well as ultra-fine powder and a variety of high-tech products such as power battery materials for new energy vehicles and plastic wood profiles are manufactured from recycling, thus forming a complete recycling industrial chain for rare metal resources.

GEM has applied for 1956 core patents in the field of urban mining and new energy material manufacturing, and formulated and revised 226 national/industrial standards. It has built a line of highly competitive bases, including the waste batteries and cobalt nickel tungsten resource recycling base, the ultrafine cobalt powder manufacturing base, the ternary power material re-manufacturing base, the electronic waste and scrapped car recycling base, and the national urban mine recycling demonstration base. Chinese National WEEE Recycling Engineering Research Center was established on the basis of GEM and has been awarded an array of honorary titles by national authorities, including the "national pilot enterprise for circular economy", the"national advanced unit of circular economy", the "national circular economy education and demonstration base, the "national demonstration base for urban minerals", the "national exemplary enterprise in technological innovation", the "national exemplary enterprise in intellectual property", and the "national environmental education and social practice base for primary and secondary school students". It has become an excellent practitioner of China's green development philosophy.

In the future, under the guidance of the Chinese government's green development concept, GEM is determined to be a green enterprise that has an impact on the national economy, become a world leader green enterprise to speak and play a role in the world on behalf of Chinese environmentally-friendly enterprises, stick to the core industry strategy of urban mines+new energy materials, practice recycling industry with green technology, connect the Belt and Road Initiative with green industry, show the world responsibility of Chinese environmentally-friendly enterprises, and create a great environmental protection enterprise that is respected by the whole world.
