Germanium Recycling

With a high refractive index, Germanium is a vital component in many infrared systems, lenses, and windows, as well as a powerful semiconductor.

Many forms of Germanium scrap are difficult to recycle and thus are improperly disposed of. This both produces excess waste and is a major missed opportunity, as owners of Germanium scrap can sell these metals to recycling and processing companies.

Oryx Metals buys and recycles all forms of Germanium materials and Germanium alloy scrap, including broken and damaged optics, sputtering targets, solid chunks of Germanium, solar cells and panels, infrared lenses, LEDs, and glass-clad single-crystal optical fiber.
