Spent catalysts

Reactana GmbH is specialised in the recycling of fly ashes with a high content of cobalt and/or cobalt/manganese oxide.

Please let us know the types/quantities you can offer. We will contact you to discuss our possibilities.

Hard metal scrap

Reactana GmbH has developed its own process for the recycling of hard metal scrap that comprises exclusively cobalt as a binder. The process is particularly suited for large parts such as e.g. morgan rolls with a relatively high cobalt content.

We are also processing hard metal scrap on a toll basis and provide you with the tungsten carbide powder obtained from your hard metal scrap, including all originally present doping materials.
