Alfa Chemistry Optimized Precious Metal Catalysts Recovery and Refining Service

The New York-based chemical supplier Alfa Chemistry announced earlier this month that it has taken measures to optimize metal catalysts recovery and refining service. Equipped with years of experience in precious metal catalysts, the company is capable of providing a wide array of catalysts as well as related services for customers.

Now at Alfa Chemistry, customers can have easy access to not only precious metal catalysts and alloy, but also waste recycling and refining services of precious metal catalysts. The advance and flexibility in metal-catalyst interaction has contributed to a widely potential application. Precious metal catalysts are used for a variety of purposes.

“Owing to their properties like high activity and selectivity in catalysis as well as stability, precious metal catalysts are needed in many reactions. Considering their limited amount as a very scarce resource, the recovery and refining of them are of great significance,” says a senior scientist from Alfa Chemistry.

The recovery and refining precious metals from spent catalysts are no easy task. Many variables are associated with this process. To provide better service to customers, Alfa Chemistry’s scientists have tackled a series of technical problems via scientific and technological experiments. While highest possible returns and fastest possible turnaround times are the pursuits, the whole process should be in full compliance with environmental regulations. This is what Alfa Chemistry is exactly doing in the past, now and in the future.

“So far, while capturing the environmental problems in the recovery process, we can get desired fresh catalysts with high recovery rate. For example, currently our company has achieved a breakthrough in recycling rhodium octoate catalyst waste materials to get fresh rhodium catalysts. The whole process is done in an environmentally friendly way. Moreover, we will continue to enhance our refining craft so that ever higher metal recovery rates can be achieved in the near future.”
