Industrial catalyst


Industrial catalysts are used in a variety of applications in various industries. For example, they are used in bio and natural gas plants, cogeneration plants and chemical plants. The industrial catalysts can be made from both ceramic and metallic materials and also contain interesting amounts of precious metals, such as platinum, palladium and rhodium.

These precious metals act as catalysts in chemical reactions that take place within the facilities and help clean out harmful substances from the emissions. It is important that industrial catalysts function optimally to reduce the environmental impact and to meet various environmental requirements and regulations.

When industrial catalysts reach the end of their life or need to be replaced, they can be recycled to reuse the valuable precious metals. Recycling of precious metals reduces the need to extract new metals and thus reduces the environmental impact from mining and extraction. In addition, recycled precious metals can be used in new products, reducing production costs and promoting sustainability and the circular economy.
