Using recycled materials, including metals, instead of extracting or creating new ones cuts CO2 emissions by 200 million tonnes each year, according to EU figures. Add to this an 86 per cent reduction in air pollution, and a 76 per cent decrease in water pollution. In fact, scrap iron can even be used to detoxify industrial waste water.
Reusing scrap metal helps to build and emphasize the circular economy, where we can keep reaping the benefits of metals that have already been extracted over and over again.
There are many uses for scrap metal and the benefits for the economy and the environment of recycling types of metals during the recycling process.
