Rhenium recycling

Recycling rhenium closes the value cycle and protects the flora and fauna of the mining areas

The special metal rhenium is the basis for your company’s products, and you are looking for a partner for rhenium recycling? You are in the right place, and we welcome you to Buss & Buss Spezialmetalle GmbH. For more than 25 years, we are specialized in recycling of special metals like rhenium, tantalum, zirconium, hafnium, niobium or gallium.

Turning old into new – rhenium as a recycling product

Rhenium is not only a very rare metal, but its mining is also more of a by-product of ore mining or the extraction of Mansfeld copper shale. The largest rhenium deposits extend into Chile, Canada and the United States. Thus, there are many reasons to return already extracted rhenium to the value cycle through re-use. By recycling rhenium, we protect the remaining rhenium deposits and their mining areas and stop the destruction of flora and fauna habitats.
A high energy input is necessary in order to mine the ores containing rhenium and extract the rhenium afterwards. With our special rhenium recycling process, we offset this additional energy expenditure since far less energy is required to recycle rhenium than to mine new rhenium ores.

With us, you remain independent – from rhenium scrap to pure rhenium

Over the past two and a half decades, we have developed differentiated thermal, mechanical and chemical processes that enable us to extract rhenium from rhenium waste and scrap at our plant so that we can offer this rare specialty metal again in its pure form. This gives our global customers the opportunity to keep up with international competition and to produce more independently of American and Asian market movements.

Have we convinced you? Go the way of rhenium recycling with us. We offer you the purchase of rhenium scrap and the sale of rhenium in its pure form. Feel free to contact us by phone or by contact form.
