We consider it to be our social mission to track down scarce special metals in urban areas and recycle and reuse them. This is why we constructed our unique recycling system. We are carrying out a wide range of operations with cobalt scrap, nickel, precious metals, rare earth elements and all of the other rare metals, from sorting and testing to extraction, processing, and sale. In particular we possess an outstanding record in the sorting and testing of cobalt scrap and in 2005 we developed a new processing system which produces cobalt ingots from magnets. At HAYASHI we are continuing to pursue new possibilities for cobalt recycling.
