Using its recycling processes, SNAM produces metal cadmium as ingots. The purity of the cadmium varies according to customer specifications. It can go from 99.95% (3N5) to 99.9995% (5N+).

Use:
Cadmium from SNAM's recycling is mainly used in the manufacture of new Nickel-Cadmium batteries. It can be used in the production of pigments to obtain colours from yellow to red. Thanks to its chemical properties, it can be used to protect metals against corrosion. Cadmium is very pure in the form of cadmium telluride (CdTe), which can be used in the make up of thin layer photovoltaic cells.

Coming from NiCd and NiMH batteries after recycling, SNAM produces nickel-iron alloys (NiFe) with nickel content from 10% to 60%.

Use:
The nickel-iron alloys (NiFe) produced by SNAM are mainly used to produce stainless steels. The physical properties according to the nickel content allow these alloys to be used in sectors as varied as construction, tableware manufacture and aeronautics.

MELCO

From recycling Lithium-Ion batteries a cobaltiferous mixture called "MELCO" is produced. The cobalt content can vary between 10% and 30%.

Use:
MELCO is mainly used as an additive in the production of pigments for glass and the paint industry.
