"

In 2019, GEM achieved revenue of 14.4billion RMB and a net profit of 740 million RMB, ranking 5th among Chineseenvironmental protection enterprises (1st in private sector) and Top 500Chinese manufacturing enterprises. 20 years ago, GEM was still a green dream.On Dec 28, 2001, GEM, meaning Green Manufacturing, a name with a green dream,was established in Shenzhen by Prof. Xu Kaihua.

Over the past 20 years, with the support ofvarious policies of the Chinese government, and started with the industrialconcept of "Limited Resources Unlimited Recycling" and the greenconcept of "exploiting urban mines, lighting up beautiful China" GEMovercome key technologies in the field of waste recycling, continuouslyexpanded the layout of the waste recycling industry, and developed into aleader in China\'s circular economy, a world leader in waste recycling, and thehead of the supply chain of the world\'s cemented carbide industry and the newenergy industry. It has written the industry legend of the world\'s wasterecycling and is one of the successful cases of innovation and entrepreneurshipin China\'s environmental protection field.

In terms of innovation, GEM hascontinuously invested in R&D, introduced core talents, and invested morethan 3 billion yuan in R&D. It has overcome a series of key technologies ofwaste battery recycling, waste electronic recycling, scrapped vehiclesrecycling, scarce resource recycling and new energy material manufacturing,obtained more than 1900 core patents, led the revision of more than 220 nationalstandards, has won several national scientific and technological progressawards, has become a "pillars of a great power" in the field of wasterecycling, ranking among China\'s top 300 patents and Top 20 comprehensivetechnological innovation capabilities, approved to set up the NationalElectronic Waste Recycling Engineering Technology Research Center and theNational Enterprise Technology Center, made a significant contribution to thetechnological progress of China’s waste recycling industry and green development,and became the world’s used batteries, electronic waste, scrapped vehicles andleading enterprise in the recycling of scarce resources.

In terms of business, GEM started fromrecycling small batteries and cobalt-nickel resources, to recycling electronicwaste, scrapped vehicles, power batteries, and to recycling and remanufacturingternary materials, lithium cobalt oxide materials, cobalt tetroxide and otherpower battery and digital battery materials. GEM has not only become China\'sleading waste comprehensive treatment enterprise, but also the world\'s leadingsupplier in the field of new energy, achieving the dual-track driving model of"urban mines + new energy materials".

The annual recycling of electronic waste accounts for 10%of China’s total scrap, and the recycling of used batteries (except lead-acidbatteries) accounts for 10% of China’s total scrap. The recycling of cobaltresources exceed China’s original cobalt mining, the recycling of nickelresources account for 8% of China’s nickel mining, the recycling of tungsten resourcesaccount for 5% of China’s original tungsten mining, the recycling of germaniumresources account for 6% of global production, and the remanufacturing of precursor of new energy ternary powerbatteries materials account for 20% of the world market, and theremanufacturing of ultra-fine cobalt powder materials account for more than 50%of the world market, and recycling 25 kinds of scarce resources such as nickel,cobalt and tungsten, supporting China\'s mainstream supply and made asignificant contribution to China\'s construction of a recycling society and theimplementation of green development concepts. GEM has been awarded nationalgreen and innovation honors such as the National Circular Economy EducationDemonstration Base, the National Primary and Secondary School EnvironmentalEducation Social Practice Base, the National Green Factory, and the NationalInnovative Enterprise.
