Overview of Export of Cleaned Spent Precious Metal Bearing Catalyst

Solid Catalysts contain the metal oxide, metals and sulphides that contribute mainly in the refining process of petroleum to cleaner fuels and many other valuable and precious products but become solid waste after utilisation. In many industries, these spend catalysts are discarded from the hydro-processing units and constitute a large part of this solid waste. Proper dumping of this solid waste containing the Spend Catalysts requires stringent guidance and compliance with the Hazardous Waste Management Rules due to the hazardous and toxic Nature of the Waste.  Therefore to manage the Spend Catalyst from becoming an environmental problem, there is a number of methods that can be employed like metals recovery, minimizing spent catalyst waste generation by regeneration and reuse, utilization to produce useful materials and treatment for safe disposal as well as Export of Cleaned Spent Precious Metal Bearing Catalyst.

Precious metal catalysts are crucial for many technical syntheses. The main application fields in oil refining are catalytic reforming, isomerisation and hydrocracking. Such precious metal-bearing catalysts are also used in bulk and speciality chemicals productions such as vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephtalic acid (PTA) and many hydrogenation processes. The noble metals involved are mainly platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd), but also the other platinum group metals (PGM) ruthenium (Ru), iridium (Ir) and rhodium (Rh), as well as gold (Au) and silver (Ag), either alone or in combination. Often, other metals (for example, Sn, Pb, Ni, Co, Ge) are used as promoters. All these metals are coated on various carriers such as alumina, silica, zeolites and carbon.

Apart from these precious metals mentioned above, spent catalysts also contain different substances like: -

  • Catalytic base metals and promoters: Sn, Pb, Ni, Co, and so forth
  • Fe, Ni, Cr from process corrosion of reactor walls and tubes
  • Hazardous elements by way of contamination through the feed/crude oil (As, Hg and more)
  • Halogens (Cl, F, and so on) such as those found in isomerisation catalysts
  • Carbon (for example, high coked “heel” CCR catalysts) and hydrocarbon contamination from the catalytic process.

Need for Export of Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste is defined by The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Changes “any material, excluding radioactive and domestic wastes, that because of its reactive, quantity and corrosive, toxic, ignitable, and infectious characteristics causes substantial hazards to human health or environment when improperly handled or manage, transported, stored and disposed of”.  According to the given definition, hazardous waste has an unbalanced chemical composition, which, if not treated scientifically or disposed of by taking proper measures, poses a severe threat to both environment and human health.

In India, it is recorded that around 51.1 MMT of waste is produced per year, among which around 7.46 MMT the hazardous and toxic waste is generated by estimated 43,936 industries. Therefore to regulate this much hazardous waste, the government enacted the Hazardous Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2008, which oversee and regulate the proper Hazardous Waste Management governed by The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) and State Pollution Control Board. These rules also mandate the Hazardous Waste Management Authorization.

Uses of Precious Metal Catalysts

Precious Metal Catalyst, because of its properties, have many uses, including the processing of Chemical, Petrochemical, Hydrocarbon and pharmaceutical for facilitating reactions, automotive exhaust systems, and catalytic abatement processes.

Process of Authorisation Required for Export of Cleaned Spent Precious Metal Bearing Catalyst

The registration relating to the Management and Regulation of hazardous waste, including the Export of Cleaned Spent Precious Metal Bearing Catalyst, is prescribed under The Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management, Handling and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016. For authorisation exporter have to file an application under Form 5 with the justification for the activity and the additional documents, once these application and documents are reviewed by the authority the license for the export of Cleaned Spent Precious Metal Bearing Catalyst is granted.

Documents needed for export of Cleaned Spent Precious Metal Bearing Catalyst:

  • Form 5 of Hazardous and Waste Rules, 2016.
