What Is The Average Cost Of Rhenium Per Gram/Pound/Ton? Average Rhenium Price?

The average cost of rhenium is $4 to $5 per gram. Rhenium (Re) is the last naturally-occurring element to be discovered. In the US, it is recovered as a by-product from roasting molybdenum concentrates. Rhenium-containing products include ammonium perrhenate, metal powder and perrhenic acid. The major use of rhenium is in petroleum-reforming catalysts and in super alloys used in high temperature, turbine engine components. It is also used in electrical contacts, electron tubes, heating elements, metallic coatings and semiconductors. All spent platinum-rhenium catalysts are recycled in the US, which imports it source of rhenium mainly from Chile (85%).
