RMC to Attend Trade Mission to China

October 15, 2014

Ontario's Trade Mission pose for a picture before departing for China. Raw Materials Company (RMC) is honored to be attending Ontario's Science and Technology Trade Mission to China from October 26th - Nov 7th, 2014.

While in China, RMC will be attending the 4th China Jiangsu Conference for International Technology Transfer and Commercialization to discuss the importance of battery recycling programs to the environment.

Approximately 60 Ontario businesses in the clean technology and science sectors will be taking part in Kathleen Wynne’s first international trade mission as Premier.  The mission builds on Ontario’s Going Global Trade Strategy that is meant to help Ontario’s small to medium sized enterprises expand into priority markets such as China.

“Ontario welcomes investments from China, and my government is taking the steps needed to ensure that Ontario remains North America’s top destination for foreign direct investment. I look forward to strengthening our economic ties with China so we can continue to prosper and grow together,” said Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario. 

Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Raw Materials Company is able to recover zinc from the batteries that you recycle. The zinc we recover is then reused as micronutrients in fertilizer to grow corn for biofuel.

As a result of RMC's recycled materials, farmers are able to increase their yields by over 20 bushels per acre. This is important considering our growing population and the need to make efficient use of our existing farmland.
