Get To Know Gulf
Gulf Chemical & Metallurgical Corporation (GCMC) is the world’s largest and most experienced recycler of spent petroleum catalysts and a leading producer of ferroalloys.


We have provided our services to the oil refining industry since 1946, and are the only processor with the flexibility to optimize the metal values contained in spent catalysts. Our unique, proprietary processes use both hydrometallurgical and pyrometallurgical operations to recover molybdenum, vanadium, nickel, cobalt and alumina products. These recovered products are then used in chemical and metallurgical applications by major catalyst producers and steel manufacturers.
