Texas Firm Expands Carbide Scrap Recycling Unit

American National Carbide Inc. (ANC) has expanded its carbide scrap recycling facility.

The Tomball, Texas-based carbide products maker said in a news release that the expansion increases its capacity to process more than 1 million pounds of scrap carbide annually, making it one of the largest recyclers of the material in the world.

The company was immediately unavailable to specify the location of the facility.

The two-year, multimillion dollar project included the addition of new equipment and advances in carbide recycling technology.

 “This expansion was a key part of our push for sustainability with respect to tungsten carbide,” said ANC President D. Greg Stroud. “By minimizing the presence of tungsten carbide in the waste stream and increasing recycling of this material, we are helping to offset any future effects of its consumption.”
