Ferrous scrap is largely comprised of iron and steel scrap. It is generated from the most of the end of life products which are obsolete or worn-out. These ferrous scrap metals are derived from the steel structures, household appliances, construction and farm equipment, automobiles, and other sources. Ferrous scrap is the most recycled material worldwide.

Ferrous metal recycling

In general, metal recycling is a pyramid industry with many small companies at the bottom feeding scrap to large multinationals at the top. Steel recycling involves some, or,all of the following steps:

• Inspection upon arrival
• Sorting
• Shredding
• Separation
• Shearing and cutting
• Baling

Applications

Steel is ideal for recycling because it does not lose any of its inherent physical properties during the process, which can be repeated ad infinitum. Steel is 100% recyclable and therefore, recycled steel can be used for the same applications as steel produced from virgin material. Products that are made of recycled steel include:

• Construction materials for roads, railways, infrastructure and buildings
• Electrical appliances
• Cans and containers
• Automobiles and other vehicles
• Office supplies
• Hardware: bolts, nuts, screws, etc

Recycling Facts

• Almost 40% of the world’s steel production is made from scrap.
• Recycling one tonne of steel saves 1,100 kilogrammes of iron ore, 630 kilogrammes of coal, and 55 kilogrammes of limestone.
• CO2 emissions are reduced by 58% through the use of ferrous scrap.
• Recycling one tonne of steel saves 642 kWh of energy, 1.8 barrels (287 litres) of oil, 10.9 million Btu's of energy and 2.3 cubic metres of landfill space.
• Recycling steel uses 75% less energy compared to creating steel from raw materials - enough to power 18 million homes.
• Steel recycling uses 74% less energy, 90% less virgin materials and 40% less water; it also produces 76% fewer water pollutants, 86% fewer air pollutants and 97% less mining waste.
• Steel automobile frames contain at least 25% recycled steel and a typical electrical appliance will usually be made of 75% recycled steel. Steel cans consist of at least 25% recycled steel.
