Today, the amount of production and production-related waste has increased in order to meet the rapidly increasing consumption. Recycling processes have become inevitable in order to dispose of the resulting wastes without harming the environment and human health and to bring them into the economy. In this study, the recovery of sodium-based waste powder soap used in wire drawing processes was carried out. The ion solution method, which is a physical separation method, was used. With this method, the recovery rate was found to be 98%. Thermal and chemical analyzes were carried out with thermogravimetric and differential thermal analyzes device (TGA/DTA), X-ray fluorescence spectrometer device (XRF) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to determine if there is any change in the structure of the material obtained after recovery.
