I think, it is Important to know the titanium grade because a recycling process is not simple. For example, small traces of oxygen in the titanium will make the metal brittle. In the regular process, the reduction stage is performed under an inert atmosphere. Air is not a good option. This consideration increases the recycling cost. The process involves dismantling and metal parts selection. The potential valuable material must be separated and crushed to fine particles (e.g. < 150 µm).
