Materials group Unicore reports a growth in recurring EBIT of 7%.

Some 62% of Umicore's revenues were generated by clean mobility and recycling activities in 2016 and energy efficiency improved by 7%.

‘The past year has shown clear evidence that the three megatrends that drive the growth of our busi-ness are becoming more pronounced,’ said Marc Grynberg, Umicore CEO. ‘The need for cleaner air has never been greater, the adoption of electrified transportation has started to accelerate and re-source scarcity continues to be a pressing concern, particularly for those metals that are essential for cleaner mobility and new communications technologies.’
