Recycling is the feature that allows players to turn Augments into Energy. This is distinct from Upgrading in that the latter provides a path for improving Augment quality at a cost, while recycling is the ability to salvage one’s Augment for Energy.
Recycling an Augment returns 2,000 Energy to the player, regardless of Augment Family, Class, or Variant. Genesis and summoned Augments cannot be recycled.
