Molybdenum and cobalt are significant metals that are widely used in various industries around the world. Molybdenum; used in chemical industry, metal and super alloys, stainless steels, aerospace, etch. Cobalt is used in alloys, jet turbine engines, magnets, as well as its use in batteries has become very common.

One of the most important areas of use, which is the secondary source of both cobalt and molybdenum, is spent catalysts. Scrap spent catalysts constitute a serious source of investment for these rare metals and their economic value is constantly increasing. It is a source for recycling of the major Molybdenum, Cobalt and many other metals it contains.

The fact that they are in a growing market and especially cobalt is a critical metal, makes recycling important. Thus, investment must be made in recycling these metals because recovery of molybdenum and cobalt from spent catalysts, recovery of cobalt from end-of-life batteries creates a significant supply.

Considering the various metals contained in the spent catalysts, such as Molybdenum, Cobalt, Nickel, Wolfram, etc., the non-recycling of the spent catalysts creates a serious loss both economical and environmental.

Proses Makina Company has an important place in recycling these wastes into a valuable resource with its recycling systems and continues to develop to achieve the best.
