MAIREC is your specialist for the recycling of spent industrial catalysts of all types. Industrial catalysts are used in oil refining, petrochemical industry, and in the production of various basic, fine and intermediate chemicals. Precious metals, typically in mono- or bimetallic form, are usually applied to various carrier types in different shapes and sizes, depending on the application.
PTA-palladium on pellet activated carbon from the production of chemical products.
VAM-palladium and gold on aluminium oxide silicate from the manufacture of chemical products.
Palladium and/or platinum on activated carbon from the manufacture of chemical products.
Various precious metals on activated carbon from the production of pharmaceutical products.
Reforming catalysts and other petrochemical catalysts, containing soluble and insoluble alumina, silica-alumina, zeolite and activated carbon.
Our advanced technology guarantees you the highest possible precision, the best possible added value, and the highest standards and accuracy when it comes to homogenizing, sampling and determining the value of your material. We are also a professional partner when it comes to pre-treatment such as calcination and, if necessary, regeneration.
Our financial strength, our close relationships with banks and brokers allow us to offer you various price hedging instruments, payment models and financing: metal transfers to fresh catalyst manufacturers and suppliers, as well as advance payments and early metal returns. Ask us for an individual solution.
Manufacturers of fresh catalysts often offer recycling in order to get the order for the production of new catalyst. By releasing yourself from this constraint, you will benefit from having your spent catalysts recycled more efficiently by a true specialist. MAIREC can transfer the recovered precious metals to the manufacturer of your choice. The separation of processes maximizes value for you to the highest level.
