If you have a business where you manufacture items that produce a lot of scrap carbide, there is now a much better alternative for you than simply throwing it all away. As the raw material is a hot commodity, you can sell carbide that otherwise would have been scrapped and thrown away to companies that will recycle and reuse the material for better purposes. Being able to sell carbide to another company is like finding lost money because you never would have had another use for the material anyway. More importantly, choosing to sell carbide rather than throw it away is an environmentally friendly idea because you will be doing your part to keep ore waste out of the dump. All of these positives make it a very smart idea to make money off of what otherwise would have been your garbage.
