  • The Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) consist of a group of 6 chemically very similar elements which are further classified as the light platinum metals ruthenium (Ru) rhodium (Rh) palladium (Pd) and the heavy platinum metals iridium (Ir), osmium (Os), and platinum (Pt).
  • Platinum is the metal that is the commercially most important of all the PGMs, having the largest range of applications from jewelry to autocatalysts to electronics. Because of the unique properties of PGMs, substitutes for these elements are practically nonexistent, although they can in some situations substitute each other.
  • PGMs are extracted either as main metals (with co-production of all PGMs) or as a by-product of nickel mining.
  • The largest primary (mine) producers of PGMs are South Africa and Russia, together accounting for more than 85% of world primary supply.
  • Other producers are Canada & Zimbabwe
  • The high prices of PGMs have encouraged the establishment of efficient recycling chains
  • The main driver for the demand for platinum, palladium and rhodium is the need for emission reduction from motorized transport and the related legislation obliging the automotive industry to equip gasoline and diesel engines with catalytic converters.
