Department: Business
Keywords: catalysts, China, precious metals, recycling

Catalyst producer Johnson Matthey is starting up a plant in China that will both produce catalysts for the drug industry and recycle them. The British company hopes the site will boost its competitiveness among customers that manufacture pharmaceuticals in China.

The facilities will help speed up delivery times to customers in China. In addition, the recycling service means that customers will find it easier to recapture the precious-metal content of spent Matthey . . .
