Use, reuse and recycle
Recycling and alternative raw material sourcing is growing in importance for Sandvik and its customers. Our recycling processes significantly reduce energy consumption, lower carbon emissions and produce less waste.
For example, we have a recycling program of used cemented carbide tools which will be converted back into basic raw materials for reuse. Wolfram Bergbau und Hütten, a product area within Sandvik and a world-leading tungsten powder and tungsten carbide producer, has a proprietarily developed recycling process which is clean, efficient and provides powder with the same high quality and properties as from virgin raw materials.
