Recycling - American Iron and Steel Institute
By using steel scrap to make new steel, the North American steel industry conserves energy, emissions, raw materials and natural resources. This need for a continuous feedstock of steel scrap directly drives the recycling of many common steel products, including cans, cars, appliances, and construction materials.
Metal Recycling | Metal Casting Resources
Metals such as steel, iron, aluminum, and copper can be recycled an infinite number of times, because their metallic properties do not deteriorate with repeated melting and casting. The metal recycling industry specializes in retrieving metal from obsolete objects so that scrap metal does not end up in landfill sites.
Waste Disposal and Recycling in Steel Industry
The steel industry in North America has been recycling steel scrap for more than 150 years. The steel industry needs scrap to produce new steel, which ensures that all steel products contain anywhere from 25 percent up to 100 percent recycled content. It also is cheaper to recycle steel than it is to mine virgin ore to manufacture new steel.
Steel Scrap - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
Recycling of iron and steel scrap is very high; in fact, internal to steel plants virtually 100%. In general, recycling of total scrap to this industry is well above 70% and increasing. A critical raw material supply to the minimills has been scrap, and this has become true for the integrated mills with high continuous casting yields.
Recycling iron and steel - Jernkontoret
Steel has one outstanding characteristic: it can be endlessly recycled without its material qualities being compromised. The iron atoms are indestructible, and by melting scrap metal it is simple to get the atoms to arrange themselves in a new, regular way to form new steel with new properties.

Stainless Steel - Durable, Sustainable and 100% Recyclable ...
Currently, a lot of emphasis is laid on choosing materials that are sustainable and stainless steel, known best for its sustainability and durability properties is gaining significant recognition. Stainless steel sheets have been used for a long time for various applications across various industries and is known to be 100% recyclable. It is therefore the right material for a sustainable planet.
Metal Casting and Foundry Production | Metal Casting Blog
Casting is used to produce train wheels and other durable metal components. Our lives are filled with cast metal products. Many of the metal objects we take for granted - train wheels, trailer hitches, lamp posts, large scale industrial equipment, and even sculpture - are cast in a foundry.

PDF 12.5.1 Steel Minimills
12.5.1 Steel Minimills 126.96.36.199 General The U.S. steel industry produced about 106 million tons of raw steel in 2006, and approximately 93 "minimills" that recycle ferrous scrap metal accounted for 57 percent of the total U.S. steel production. The production of steel in minimills has increased dramatically over the past 30 years.
