Rhenium is a silvery-white, heavy metal that takes its name from the Latin for the river Rhine. It is one of the rarest elements in the earth's crust at an estimated 1 part per billion, and is extracted commercially from Molybdenum flue-roaster gases from copper sulphide ores. Total world production is estimated at 40-50 tonnes per annum, and recycling plays an important part in the market.
