German term or phrase: Katalysator (in this context)
Am doing marketing translation with a few chemical/metallurgical words thrown in (not my field!).

Here I am not sure if "K--" means "catalytic convertor" or something more specialised. How would you experts on this stuff translate "K..." in this context?

XXX verfügt über eine breite Palette an Produkten. ... Im Produktportfolio befindet sich aber auch eine breite Palette an Carbid-, Borid- und Nitridpulvern. Neben den bereits genannten Materialien produziert XXX auch Speziallegierungen wie Ferrovanadium und Ferromolybdän. Außerdem recycelt XXX metallhältige *Katalysatoren*, Flugaschen und Kesselrückstände. Das seit bereits über hundert Jahren hergestellte Produkt ist natürlich der Zündstein.

agree  Carley Hydusik: Just one thing "metal-containing catalysts", otherwise it could be understood as metal that contains catalysts
