Europe’s largest meeting place for the world’s downstream leaders
16 – 19 November, 2020 | Hotel Melia Castilla, Madrid, Spain
Nickelhütte Aue GmbH is specialized in the recycling of waste materials containing non-ferrous metals. We are especially interested in Nickel, Copper, Cobalt, Vanadium, Molybdenum and precious metal containing spent catalysts from chemical and pharmaceutical industries but also from petrochemical industries and from hydrogenation processes of oils and fats. But we are also able to treat other kinds of residues like ashes, dusts, grindings, liquids, slurries and sludge’s as long as they contain one or a combination of the above named metals. With the production of Ni, Cu, Co , Mo and V high quality chemicals out of these waste materials we can offer our customers an unique recycling loop. To complete this cycle we sell most our products back to catalyst manufacturers who use our chemicals to produce new catalysts. Our vision is to close the life cycle for catalysts.
Nickelhütte Aue GmbH, located in the south east of Germany, was founded in 1635. That means that we are now more than 380 years continuously in the market regardless of metal and currency fluctuations. Therefore we have more than 100 years of experience in secondary metal works and more than 50 years in spent / used catalyst recycling.
We are a fully certified and pre-authorized waste facility according to the UN Basel convention. We have been accredited with “Entsorgungsfachbetrieb” by the German Government which is the highest accolade for a processing facility in Germany.
