Spent Catalyst

At TP-Exports, our polymer division is specialized in the area of spent catalyst supply for recycling and recovery. With a particular focus in the metals of Molybdenum (Mo), Nickel (Ni), and Vanadium (V).

Leveraging our strategic positioning near key industrial zones across multiple continents, we ensure the efficient collection, supply and responsible processing commitment of spent catalysts. This initiative not only aids in the reduction of hazardous waste but also recovers valuable metals for reuse in various industrial applications.

Our operations are designed to accommodate the specific needs of the chemical, refining, and petrochemical sectors, offering specific solutions that balance environmental considerations with operational excellence. Additionally, in our supply, we align our practices with the principles of ISO 14001 for environmental management, ensuring responsible operations and sustainability.

Molybdenum (Mo) Catalyst

Molybdenum (Mo) based catalysts are pivotal in the industrial sector, playing a crucial role in the chemical refining processes that produce high-purity fuels and chemicals. These catalysts are renowned for their ability to facilitate the removal of sulfur and nitrogen compounds, enhancing product quality and compliance with environmental standards.

We supply varying percentage spent molybdenum catalysts for recycling or recovery operations, addressing the growing need for sustainable and environmentally responsible practices. By repurposing spent Mo catalysts, we support industries in reducing waste, recovering valuable Molybdenum, and minimizing the environmental impact of their operations.

Nickel (Ni) Catalyst

Nickel (Ni) based catalysts are indispensable in a wide array of industrial processes, from hydrogenation reactions in the food industry to the production of chemicals and synthetic fuels. These catalysts are prized for their robust performance in facilitating various chemical transformations, including the hydrogenation of unsaturated organic compounds, which is essential for producing cleaner, higher-quality products.

Our focus is on supplying spent catalysts, with a strong nickel content, for recycling or recovery initiatives. This allows spent Ni catalysts to be repurposed, decreases often contaminated industry waste, or allows for valuable Nickel to be fully reclaimed, an used in new applications.
