It is estimated that almost half of the global CO2-emission and more than 90% of the global loss of biodiversity is caused by extraction and processing of natural resources such as mining *

Nordic Urban Mining is a new and more sustainable alternative to conventional mining and recycles gold and silver from the Danish incinerators.

Nordic Urban Mining recovers already extracted precious metals by mechanically sorting out the silver and gold from our slag, which occurs from combustion of our (yours and mine) waste. These precious metals would be lost if Nordic Urban Mining wasn’t a part of the recovery process.

Nordic Urban Mining is an important element in the circular economy, because of the way they recycle discarded precious metals and reintroduce them in the production and the economy. As some of the few natural resources in the world, precious metals can be recycled an infinite amount of times, since the recycling process does not break down the precious metals. The quality of NUM is documented and has the same high standard as newly extracted precious metals.
