From the official Neocron website:
With the help of a Recycling Tool, this subskill allows to turn of junk of all kinds into ammunition, chemicals or metals. A high subskill level makes the recycling process faster; Dexterity also influences the speed somewhat.

Recycling: An Overview

Recycling is a Dexterity subskill which allows you to convert miscellaneous, usually worthless items into usable items. The Recycling skill is always aided by the Recycling or Salvage tools (see image).
An example of a Tech Level 55 Recycling Tool. Note that Recycle tools and Salvage tools look the same in Neocron
The Recycle tool allows you to convert forwards, from junk into items and ammunition or chemicals. The Salvage tool allows you to convert backwards, for example taking a weapon and converting it back into the parts it was made out of, then converting those parts into the chemicals the parts were made out of.

The Basics:

There are 3 things you can do with the recycle skill: Recycling, Cloning, and Salvaging

  • Recycling means to take a specific assortment of junk according to a recipe and make an item out of it.
  • Cloning takes a sample of an item and uses assorted junk to make more of the sample item.
  • Salvaging takes a finished product and breaks it into its component parts; you need 35 in recycling to salvage and a salvage device.

Using any of these recycle based methods trains both Int and Dex and is great for low-level runners, as you can make your own ammo, healing nanites, medkits, and even weapons without leaving dungeons or hunting areas. You need to have the Tech level of the item you are making. Most items can be made with 50 in recycle or lower, and there is not much need for recycling over 100 (except for salvaging).

To Recycle

  1. Open the Processor (F7).
  2. Drag your Recycling Tool into the first slot.
  3. Drag the Recipe Items named below one after each other into the other processor slots.
  4. Click the START Button.

Also if you put 2 Construction parts in your processor with your recycler and nothing else you will get a part2. if you put two part2s in you will get a part3 and so on up to part 10. this works for all parts - weapon parts, armour parts, vehicle parts, implant parts, weponmod parts etc. The tech level of the next higher quality is always plus 5. Quality "1" or "A" is always TL 5, "2" or "B" is then TL 10, next has TL 15, etc. This is a good way to get those part 8-10 blueprints (Assuming you have research as well). You can then sell the blueprints to other players. and in my experience the sell price of a part 2 is 2x a part 1 and so on up so it can be a good way to lighten your load in a dungeon. People call this cloning parts though it requires no random junk.

To Clone
This can be used to for example make more ammo using found junk.

  1. Open the Processor (F7)
  2. Place your recycle tool into the processor
  3. Place the item you wish to clone immediately after the slot you placed in your processor
  4. Place whatever junk you wish to use in cloning the sample into the other processor slots. Be warned though that if the junk items you place into the processor happen to be items required for a specific recycling recipe to create another item, that recipe will take precedence and you will end up having recycled something other than the item you were trying to clone. Make sure the junk you are using does not correspond to a recycling recipe! - or put the cloning sample into the big slot to make sure.
  5. Click the START button

To Salvage

  1. Open the Processor (F7)
  2. Put the salvage device in slot 1 and the item you wish to break down in slot 2, if there is more than one item(other than salvage device) in your processor it will try to guess. Be warned: the salvage device looks exactly like your recycle device, I have often lost parts or medkits this way, so check the device name.
  3. Click the START button

If it says something like "you need more cataclyctic recycling fluid", You need to buy some fluid. Fluid can be found in Cryton's Techtools and Tech Angels Equipment. If you already have fluid, make sure it is in your inventory, not in the processor or your quickslots.

Datacubes come in 3 types, empty Datacube is used for reserch, empty book is a freeform notepad only usable one time. Recordable disk is like the book but repededly editable. most people feel the cost of the components make recycling these items not worth the time or effort. these items are not reserchable and you can buy empty datacubes for less than 200nc.

Trophy Recipes

If you are lucky enough to pick up the carcass or other remains of a monster in the game, you can use a recycle tool and certain junk items to create a trophy item. This trophy item can be placed like furniture inside your apartment, or you can collect a series of trophies and trade them with an NPC to receive a Master Trophy item.

Look HERE for information on what mobs drop trophies and how to recycle them.
