We are an industrial partner for the purchase and sale of tantalum metal

We welcome you to Buss & Buss Spezialmetalle from Northern Germany. We are pleased that your online search on the subject of “tantalum metal” has led you to us. For more than 25 years, we have been active as a QM-certified company in the field of heavy metal and special metal trade. We have put our focus on buying special metals and tantalum scrap, recycling them and bringing the resources recovered with them back into the trade by selling them . In this way, we close the raw material cycle and the related value chain.

Special and heavy metal recycling by Buss & Buss Spezialmetalle

In addition to niobium, rhenium, gallium, zirconium and hafnium, we also recycle tantalum metals and tantalum scrap. But why? These metals are among the rarest in the world, and their resources are dwindling. In order not to have to fleece these last deposits completely, we have taken on the task of extracting the already mined and processed tantalum from these tantalum scrap, reprocessing it and making it available again to various industries as pure tantalum.

For tantalum recycling, we have developed various chemical, thermal and mechanical processes that enable us to produce tantalum in a pure form of 99.9%. During the recycling of the tantalum metal, far less energy capacity is required than during the initial extraction from mines. In this way, we protect the flora and fauna of the mining areas and contribute to climate protection by reducing CO2 emissions. In the purchase, recycling and sale of tantalum metals, we offer our customers a high degree of flexibility and speed, keeping them independent and competitive on an international scale.

Tantalum finds wide industrial use thanks to its outstanding properties

Our global customers for the sale of pure tantalum are found, for example, in microelectronics, where tantalum is used for exceptionally conductive capacitors. But tantalum metal is also used in medical technology because of its resistance to liquids and chemical substances and an above-average degree of hardness. This makes tantalum metal the perfect material for implants, medical instruments, prostheses, staples, or bone nails.
