Primary business:


OJSC GERMANIUM is the only one in Russia having the full cycle of recycling from different kind of raw material (production waste, ashes from coal burning, germanium concentrates and more) till finished production. The technology used here allows to recycle raw material with Ge content from 1 %. Processes and technologies of production are constantly improving.

Qualification is made in according to Russian Standards and International standards ASTM. Control of quality level is made on each intermediate stage of Goods receiving that guarantees high quality of production and strict compliance with specifications for specific types of the products.

Over 180 people are employed in the company. For today OJSC GERMANIUM has high potential, which is determined by possible product line from Ge with quality of world level and big production capacity. Exactly by these parameters the company takes the second place in the five of the world producers of germanium.
