Our closed loop
Thanks to innovative recycling processes, we are able to reclaim tantalum from almost any type of scrap with tantalum content, which also ensures the supply of raw materials and provides the customers of our tantalum-recycling program. As part of our “closed-loop-offer” we also accept used, recyclable tantalum-containing products from our customers and reprocess them to produce high-performance tantalum powders. Even after multiple recycling cycles, they are again available for use in their original quality. For the electronics industry, capacitors containing tantalum as well as tantalum sputter targets are likewise recyclable. Our integrated recycling processes can restore niobium and niobium oxide production waste to high-purity metals and oxides.
