Defluorinator Alumina Recycling
A component of the Spent Alumina Program is the recycling of spent Defluorinator alumina. Spent Defluorinator alumina can now be accepted in super sacks or bulk, whichever suits your operational needs. If loaded in flow-bins and dumpsters, contact Metaloy to develop a program to include alumina in alternate packaging.

Metaloy’s goal is to reduce the amount of spent Defluorinator catalyst sent to landfills or more costly industrial outlets. Metaloy is continually working on methods and technologies to extend the life cycle of spent Defluorinator and all alumina accepted by the program to embrace the concept of industrial ecology.
