FAGGI ENRICO S.p.a. Fine Chemicals and Catalysts Division
Facility in Calenzano (FI) The company 2 Recovery and Refining Facility in Sesto Fiorentino (FI)
The company 3 The company FAGGI ENRICO S.p.a has been operating into the precious metals field since early 1960 and it occupies a surface area of about 3500 m 2. Originally FAGGI ENRICO S.p.a. started its activity as precious metal recovery and refining facility. From mid 1970’s has been created the fine chemicals division specialized in the production of precious metals compounds.
The company 4 In 2013, FAGGI ENRICO S.p.a, located in Sesto Fiorentino, established a new Fine Chemicals and Catalysts Division in Calenzano. The 2000 m 2 manufacturing site provides platinum group metal (PGM) catalysts for synthestic processes of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries. Development, caractherization and testing of new catalysts are performed in our R&D department. The flexible manufacturing platform consist of a pilot plant and full scale commercial production facility. In addition analytical laboratories provides the quality control of all raw materials, in process and finished products.
Authorizations and Certifications 5 Authorization for storage, transport and recovery of precious metals from spent catalysts UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 certification BS OHSAS 18001:2007 (Safety Management System for recovery and production of chemicals containing precious metal) Establishment of an environmental management system according to EMAS regulation (2005)
