GEM, sticking to the concept of “eliminating pollution and reproducing resources”, has always focused on the construction of waste recycling facilities and promotion its capacity to dispose wastes. At present, sixteen recycling industrial bases have been constructed which covers ten province in China, including Guangdong, Hubei, Jiangxi, Henan, Tianjin, Jiangsu, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Zhejiang and Hunan, Durban,South Africa also included. By now, seven electronic waste treatment centers, six recycling treatment centers of scrap vehicles, five remanufacturing bases from waste batteries to power battery materials, three reproducing centers of waste plastic, two scare metals recycling centers, one remanufacturing center for automobiles’ parts and one gradient utilization of power battery packs have been established, which forms an industrial map covering every direction of China and begins its development internationally. GEM annually recycles over three million tons waste, including used batteries, WEEEs, waste nickel/cobalt/tungsten and ELVs, and has become an advanced solid waste treatment basis in China. 30 kinds of rare resources, such as cobalt, nickel, copper, tungsten, gold, silver, palladium, germanium,and indium, have been recycled.
GEM, adhering to the strategy of “urban mining and new energy material, positively develop five main industrial chains with such methods as developing waste batteries and power battery material industrial chain in an innovation way, developing stably the recycling industrial chain of electronic waste, completely establishing the recycling industrial chain of scrapped vehicles, and firmly developing GEM’s traditional industrial chain of cobalt-nickel-tungsten. Through a comprehensive integration of these five industrial chains, both strengthening the core business and promoting development of emerging business, an excellent industrial chains layout, both in China and in the world, will be established.
