Specialist in precious metals recycling Umicore has been nominated as one of
Europe's ten most innovative clean tech companies at the Dow Jones Clean Tech
Summit in Frankfurt, Germany. The nomination was for Umicore's unique recycling
technology for end-of-life rechargeable batteries. The pioneering process
enables the recycling of large volumes of used rechargeable batteries in an
efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The business line of the Belgian
company, which operates under the name Umicore Recycling Solutions (URS), was
established in 2007 and already counts a number of the world's leading
electronics and automotive manufacturers among its key suppliers.

Marc Van Sande, Umicore's Chief Technology Officer, comments on the nomination:
‘We are gratified to have been selected as one of the leading innovators in
Europe. Umicore Recycling Services stems from several years of research efforts
and is an example of Umicore's ability to develop breakthrough metal recycling
technologies. The business is a new venture and the interest shown in the
process by major corporations and recycling networks alike has been highly
encouraging. We believe that this technology can play a major role in helping
solve the problem of treating electronic waste in Europe and beyond.'
