TANAKA Launches “RE Series” Using 100% Recycled Precious Metals
June 8, 2022
TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo K.K., which operates the TANAKA Precious Metals manufacturing business, announced today the launch of its RE Series of recycled precious metals, which uses 100% recycled materials as the source of gold, platinum, and other precious metals.
The RE Series is composed of materials refined from recycled precious metals only rather than from sources such as mined bullion. TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo has been operating a recycled precious metals business since it was established. It has now expanded its RE Series production line to manufacture products that use 100% recycled precious metal materials. In the future, the company will begin manufacturing and supplying products that use RE Series materials. In April 2022, TANAKA began using RE Series gold to supply PGC-RE, a gold compound for plating, as its first product using RE Series materials.
With the first product using RE Series materials being PGC-RE, a gold compound for plating, the series will contribute to creating the Sound Material-Cycle Society while reducing the environmental impacts of carbon dioxide (CO2)
