Informed advice

LCR’s services include advice on packaging and current environmental legislation, transportation according to the latest regulations, an arrangement of weighing and sampling, recycling at fully approved facilities and issuance of Certificates of Recycling/Consumption where required.

The absence of comprehensive recycling facilities capable of handling all types and forms of spent catalyst and other secondary raw materials makes it difficult for the generator to find the appropriate recycling outlet. In addition, environmental legislation and transport regulations can be complicated and often vary from country to country. It is a minefield for the uninitiated.

Spent Catalyst Disposal Services

Customised recycling solutions

We provide customised recycling solutions to the generators of spent catalysts arising from Oil Refining, Petrochemical, Syngas and Fertilizer Industries.

It is our aim to provide commercially competitive recycling options with an emphasis on environmentally sound management.

Although it is the obligation of the generators of the spent catalyst to classify the material, our knowledgeable and friendly staff can offer advice and assistance with regards to:

  • Packaging Requirements – Whether material should be shipped in bulk, UN/DOT approved drums, catalyst bins or super sacks.
  • Transport Regulations – Our staff are fully conversant with the latest transport regulations and regularly attend courses and updates covering the transport of dangerous goods by land (ADR), sea (IMDG) and air (IATA) as well as 49CFR for movements within the USA.
  • Applicable Environmental Regulations – We have years of experience in the transboundary movement of hazardous waste, non-hazardous waste, hazardous and non-hazardous metals and concentrates.

A network of agents and associates around the globe together with long-term relationships with fully licenced, ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified recycling facilities, enable us to provide the most suitable, commercially competitive options for each generator.

Site visits / environmental audits are available where required.

Many of the recovered metals are returned to the industry in the form of high-purity raw materials thus closing the recycling loop.
