We care for the environment
Our vision is to preserve the Earth’s resources while making first class products, so the entire company philosophy is one of preservation and sustainability.
FENIX METALS contributes to the sustainable development of our globe through environmentally correct recycling of tin containing residues from industrial production, producing refined metal for renewed industrial use. It is well understood that efficient recycling is preferable to equivalent primary mining extraction processes as it has much lower energy consumption and environmental impact.
In short – recycling is sustainability.
FENIX METALS policy is to operate in a safe and responsible manner that respects the environment, our employees, our customers and the communities in which we operate. We will not compromise environmental, health or safety values for profit or production and expect all employees to understand, promote and assist in the implementation of this policy.
