Recycling of metal and drilling sludges

CRONIMET ENVIROTEC – the optimal solution to recycle your metal soft scrap, contaminated spent catalysts & drilling muds.

Our vacuum distillation plant in Bitterfeld-Wolfen is the first plant worldwide for processing oil- and metal-containing sludges. The patented process enables the environmentally friendly separation of substances without chemical modification. Contaminations are removed without residue – with constant quality.

With a capacity of 20,000 tons per year grinding emulsions, oil and other contaminants are separated from solids, such as metal. In addition to drilling and metal sludges , saturated catalysts can also be recycled.

We have set ourselves the task of efficiently utilising resources and then returning them to the market. In this way, sustainability and economy are optimally combined.
