about scanacon

Best quality, economy and sustainability

We keep every batch of your pickling, etching or milling acid fresh for longer intervals through smart acid management, seamlessly integrated in your production. Less acid going into your plant means less money spent and less waste out. No wonder metal producers have been adopting The Scanacon Way for over 40 years.

The Scanacon Way

Metal recycling

Don’t waste a nickel. Produce it!

Scanacon is currently developing the world's first metal recycling system capable of extracting metallic nickel from waste streams. The automated process will regenerate up to 30 kilograms of high-value basic nickel every hour – ready to be fed straight back into your stainless-steel production.
