Vanadium recycling

Vanadium Recycling - High purity vanadium chemicals from recycled residues

Today, vanadium is still predominantly extracted from titanium magnetite ores and the resulting vanadium slag. At the same time, large amounts of vanadium accumulate in oil residues, spent catalysts, ashes, and other residues.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, GfE has gained valuable knowledge in the sourcing of high-purity vanadium compounds and materials for the production of vanadium metal and vanadium alloys. Our process for the recycling of vanadium compounds are environmentally friendly. Thus, nature and resources will be untouched.

Our vanadium recycling is unique worldwide. We are specialized in extracting our raw material from industrial waste of power plants, gasifiers and refineries.

Our aim is to work together with our customers in a partnership to achieve both environmental and economic goals. You can benefit from our know-how for: 

  • worldwide purchasing of oil residues with specific metal contents for treatment in our recycling facilities according to environmental laws´
  • technical and administrational support for notifications
  • evaluation of residues regarding their potential applications
  • recycling processes according to the condition of residues

  • licenses for treatment of all oil residues
