IWhy recycling hard metal scraps?
1. Because it’s good for the environment
The raw materials generated can be reused within a new production cycle, thus contributing to a rational consumption of natural resources.
Unlike more common plants, using chemicals and very dangerous toxic substances, OMCD uses the carbothermal regeneration process, with a lower environmental impact as compared to any other technology currently in use.
Moreover, the electrical energy used for this process comes for more than 40% from renewable energy sources.
2. Because you will save money
After using our products, you should take care of their transport and disposal by authorized companies, at high costs. We will take this burden from you, with a free pick-up, also providing an economic return.
Furthermore, the eco-friendly culture is spreading more and more, and good practices contributing to the protection of environment and sustainability are recognized and rewarded by the market.
3. Because you help us ensure the continuity of your supply
Thanks to your hard metal scraps, OMCD ensures its supply independence. By limiting the use of virgin raw materials, the company can be free from the production policies and monopolistic purposes expressed by China and by the other multinationals of the sector.
4. Because our regenerated powder is of excellent quality
In 2003, OMCD physics and metallurgy laboratory inaugurated its first pilot plant for the regeneration of hard metal scraps. Results were so amazing in terms of quality that the OMCD Group started a large-scale production of regenerated powders.
