Recycling scrap metal is a popular environmentally-friendly manner of conservation the earth’s natural resources. Recycling unwanted metal parts can make it possible to conserve energy that would otherwise be needed during manufacturing.
THE BENEFITS OF
Every year corporations and consumers discard as garbage millions of tons of metal. According to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, approximately 150 million tons of scrap metal was recycled in the year 2008 and these numbers have continued to increase, contributing to an environment-friendly world.
A massive amount of energy is spent during mineral ore drilling, metal refining, and other processes of metal manufacturing. Recycling scrap metal conserves this energy.
Production using recycled scrap metal has been observed to reduce levels of greenhouse gas emission, decrease wastage from mining, and also decrease water wastage.
Recycling of metal drastically reduces the demand for virgin ore otherwise required by manufacturers of metal products, thereby, reducing the undue stress on the limited available metal ore.
