Environmentally responsible metallic recovery method created

New Jersey— Recycalytics, a company that specializes in the recovery of metallic values from end-of-life catalysts and catalyst production scrap, has begun accepting end-of-life metal supported catalyst media for recovery of the contained platinum group metal values.

Kurt Ellis, president of Recycalytics stated “metal substrate catalyst elements have always been a challenging recycling problem. We have spent the last two years experimenting to find an effective method to recover the high PGM values bonded to the metal monolith. We’re pleased to have finally identified an efficient and environmentally friendly solution.”

According to Ellis, “our business model is simple and straightforward. We rapidly assess the contained metallic value on any given catalyst. We can then calculate settlement values based on market pricing for the contained metals. Our customers receive immediate payments without the risks and complexities of traditional toll refining charges, delays, sampling requirements and price fluctuations.”

Chris Varrecchione, vice president of sales and marketing adds, “it is a true delight to hand a customer a large check for what they had presumed to be essentially a disposal problem. It’s a classic case of converting lemons to lemonade.”

Catalytic materials handled include ceramic (monolith & bead), metal supported catalysts of all varieties, reforming, and carbon supported catalysts as well as automotive catalytic converters.
