Waste Stream Evaluations

There are many choices when it comes to selecting a precious-metals refiner.


Determining which organization adds the most value isn't easy. At IQA Metal , we understand how businesses employ precious metals in their manufacturing operations; therefore we can add value beyond the refining process. Our Technical Service Solutions (TSS) assists our clients measure and manage the refining process.

By setting standards of operation through waste stream evaluations, we protect the interest of our clients and improve their total recovery. Some of our solutions include: Waste Stream Evaluations (WSE), Digital Representation, and Independent Representation with Assay Certification.


Management Reporting

IQA Metal understands that managing precious metal reclamation is not the focus of our client's business. In order to professionally and effectively process precious metal waste, there must be systems in place to measure and manage the results.

Our sophisticated refining circuit combined with our comprehensive tracking and reporting systems ensure that each shipment is individually processed in a precisely controlled manner.

Using data captured by our information systems, we generate customized reports for our clients, delivering information when and how they want it. Reports such as excel spreadsheet analysis reports, monthly accountable records, and certificates of destruction are easily distributed from our information systems.

These valuable reports help our clients identify trends, quickly address issues, and form the foundation for future decisions.
