Are you really concerned about the Environment?

The concept of recycling is not just a matter of collecting waste to follow the best humanitarian environmental practices but it’s actually a mission to cater such an efficient economic system for all the manufacturing industries where recycler motivates people to collect it for sale to recycling operations by eliminating a potential source of pollution & reclaiming valuable materials. 

If you look around metal recycling companies in UAE those are committed to helping the communities to keep their environment clean through innovative recycling programs.  It’s also depends where you live like UAE the fastest developing country in the world generating a very large amount of waste every year specially the organic waste ends up in municipal landfills every day.  Waste issues are handled through efficient recycling programs.

Citizens in every country can do many activities to work together and reduce waste but there is always a never ending list of what can and cannot be recycled. For example we can recycle plastic bottles, cans, paper, metals but the question is have you achieved recycled goals, probably haven’t.  

Like, along with eatables a great amount of plates, spoons and glasses made of paper or plastic are wasted. A lot of tissue papers are found in bins which are almost unused. Many times people take food and don’t finish it, resulting into food wastage. All these waste materials must be recycled.

Have you ever thought what may happen if all the metal ores get depleted? Where are we going to build machines, manufacture tools and what will you drink your favorite soda from? Metals are an important part of our lives and are used for manufacturing umpteen things today. To save this from happening, what we need to practice is recycling.

To practice recycling is something that our planet needs. This process of tuning and putting things back into usage is an extremely healthy for the environment and is extremely beneficial economically. Dubai scrap yards actively and very positively involved in this practice. Therefore, it’s high time that these efforts are appreciated and valued and the number of people joining this cause increases. So, start separating your wastes and ensure that you do the needful on your part. After all, every attempt counts!

Scrap metals Dubai take care of your scrap metal wastes and recycle them into reusable metals.  Lucky Group’s recycling facilities strives continually to ensure that the metal trash is recycled efficiently.

We have explored many aspects of recycled metals in previous blogs. Today we will see where does recycled metal scrap goes next.  Recycled metal has plethora of uses – it is never wasted. Scrap metals like copper, iron, aluminum, steel, and others are collected from Dubai scrap yards recycled at metal recycling companies in Dubai and reused in the following ways: 

Industrial Use

Construction projects use huge volumes of iron and steel. They are also used extensively for building infrastructure like roads and bridges. In the transportation industry, steel is used in the manufacturing of vehicles, aircrafts, etc. Iron, especially cast-iron recycling holds a lot of potential as it is used for variety of structural and decorative purposes. 

Packaging 

Recycled scrap metals like steel and aluminum are commonly reused as new food packaging. Most canned goods use a significant percentage of recycled metal and many are made from 100% recycled scrap metals. 

Recycled scrap metal can reappear on shelves as a new food or beverage container with a quick turnaround time of around 2 months. This process is extremely efficient and economical. Additionally, recycled aluminum requires less processing and as a result, also reduces emission of greenhouse gases than new aluminum. This makes the production of packaging using recycled metal both eco-friendlier and more cost-effective as compared to creating cans using new aluminum.

Home Furnishings

If we take a good look around our house, we will stumble upon many instances wherein recycled metal has been put to use. Furnishings, fixtures, and lighting make use of recycled metal components. Metal roofing these days sometimes are made completely out of recycled metals. 

Various artists have got creative and used the scrap metal to create modern artwork and d├ęcor material. It has been instrumental in inspiring people in reusing and recycling rather than replacing the decor with new items. 

Copper is an important component in a common household. Recycled copper is used in structure of a household, plumbing materials, cable, and heat exchanges. It is also used in air conditioning systems. 

Right from industrial and manufacturing to household, recycled metal scrap is used in all shapes and forms. Dubai scrap trading provide you with endless possibilities and innovations that you can discover when you choose to recycle your scrap metal. 

Lucky Recycling, part of Lucky Group is one of the largest recycling companies in the UAE. It aims to create a sustainable future for the planet and the coming generations with their conscious recycling efforts.

Single Stream Recycling

Since, 1973 the Lucky Group of Companies has been on the forefront when it comes to scrap metal trading as one of the leading recycling companies in the UAE.

The company’s innovative efforts to recycle scrap metals from landfills across the globe with their headquarters in Dubai, U.A.E. Most of us here in Dubai have probably heard of recycling, but single stream recycling? Well, it simply refers to putting all types of recyclable materials together and let a private company handle the segregating bit.

Research shows that recycling has worked better in towns and cities abroad like in the United States when single channel recycling was introduced. No longer did people have to take the trouble to segregate different types of recyclable items and separate the trash that they were trying to get rid off on a daily basis. It became a success because there was little effort required in segregating garbage from the recyclable items and that people would quickly adapt to it; whereas normally they would dump garbage altogether and avoid the original complex recycling process as a whole.

Single stream recycling can also save money because companies that handle such recyclable items pay for those items. The government thus, no longer needs to pay landfills to get rid of such garbage. How does this help the environment? Well, it simply speeds up the whole process because everyone at every level of the hierarchy is co-operating and when this happens, the right recyclable items get channeled onto the right path eventually reaching the manufacturers on time with environmentally sustainable in a cost effective way.

If an aluminum can reaches at scrap metals yard in Dubai on time, it prevents the need for manufacturers to purchase virgin materials to keep their production numbers up and running. In a similar way the quicker the different types of ferrous metal scrap lands up at Dubai scrap yards, the lesser will be the requirement for newer and rarer earth metals across different industries.

Single stream recycling not only encourages recycling, but clears up the bottlenecks in the recycling process.

What affects the value of Scrap Metals?

Anyone involved in metal recycling is aware of fluctuations in its value. In this blog, we want to shed light on some factors that may affect the value of scrap metals. 

Production and Energy costs

The cost of energy and production has a significant effect on the price of scrap metal. These include cost incurred for gas, oil, and other sources of electricity. If the costs of processing are high, the price that is offered for scrap metal may drop to make up for the difference. 

Supply and Demand

Just like any other commodity, the demand and supply make an evident.

Quality and Quantity

The value of scrap is highly dependent on the quality. Scrap metals covered in corrosion or insulation would not bring the value as much as clean, high quality scrap metal would do. 
Imagine trading a pound of aluminum cans vs trading a truckload of aluminum scrap. Obviously, the truckload will fetch you more revenue. If the scrap buyers in Dubai get more scrap metal with lower overhead, including a lower number of transactions and transportation, they can offer a higher price.

Location

Most of the times, the scrap metal is not fully processed at the Dubai scrap yards. The scrap is transported for further processing. If the processing location is farther from the scrap yard, it will affect the overall costs, thereby reducing your profit margins. The buyers may also consider the transportation cost into the prices they offer for the scrap metal to protect their individual profits.

Price of Virgin Metal

Virgin metals are those metals that are newly mined and have not ever been used, recycled, or processed. If virgin metals are expensive owing to the energy and production costs, supply and demand; scrap metal becomes more valuable as an alternative. Similarly, if the virgin metal prices fall, scrap metal becomes less essential and industries can afford virgin metals.

International Commodity Trading

With countries getting more active in the industry, foreign market fluctuations influence the value of scrap metal. India and China, for example, deal with very large quantities of scrap metal imports. In case the economy slows down, scrap metal prices can take a hit as well. It is important to keep an eye on market trends to determine the right time to trade scrap metals to get the maximum value. 

Lucky Group is the leading metal scrap buyer in Dubai and one of the largest recycling companies in the U.A.E. The company has spearheaded recycling initiatives to build a sustainable future for the planet. We guarantee the best value in market for the scrap metal.

Smart Generation Smart Recycling

 With the advancement of technology, many research work has started to  pay attention to the importance and necessity of smart education programs enabling users to learn more effectively, efficiently, flexibly and comfortably because traditional learning approach has been criticized for not able to meet the needs of today’s society. So it is necessary to design new learning environments, both technically and educationally.

A smart approach through which we can educate our children about recycling and to understand the importance of caring our environment is by taking their recycling duties seriously. Today’s generation use smart mobile devices and digital resources for communications, learning, and entertainment in their everyday lives to learn in any place and at any time.

Recycling different waste products is very important. There are many metal recycling companies in Dubai. But this should be done on a very large scale. If only a few of us contribute towards it then it will not benefit the environment as much as it should. It is often observed that in families children waste many things. It is necessary to educate your little ones on recycling benefits.

Advise your children on three things first:

Reduce: You can tell your kids not to waste things by buying things in abundance.

Reuse: Most of the kids don’t know how to reuse. Parents should teach them in a playful manner, the art of reusing items for example using cartons which comes with packaging items that can be reused for your school assignments which will never go unappreciated. 

Recycle: Kids have grown up seeing things used only for one purpose. By making different craft works and from using scrap in your house will give them an idea to think twice  before throwing something away or buying something that won’t be useful.

Also some of the smart activities that will help kids understand what recycling is and how they can be part of it for example:

Books are our best friends, buy books for them to understand the environment and teach them what happens when you don’t care for the environment.

Question them to find out things that can be recycle and reuse all over your home.

Encourage them to jot down the items what can or can’t be recycled like steel, glass, plastic, paper, aluminium cans that can be recycled.  Lucky Recycling is an environmental active and conscious body. It participates in events promoting safety of the environment.  Lucky Group proudly announced to be part of recent can collection campaign organized by EEG Emirates Environmental Group, U.A.E on 27th February 2021.

Show online recycling programmes to teach them how to take care of the earth through YouTube channels or some online educational sites.

Look at your surrounding go to the beach, park, malls and point out the trash which is harmful for our environment.

Educate them the difference between waste management and recycling, let them know where the rubbish goes or what goes into dumping facilities and what goes to recycling facilities.

Lucky Group contributes to several other environmentally conscious industries world-wide as a metal recycling industry which is one of the largest recycling companies in U.A.E

Their mission is to cater to the specific scrap metal requirements of their customers and simultaneously expand their supplies by creating strategic alliances with key suppliers.

How to Reduce Food Wastage?

Food wastage is a global problem. There are some countries with abundant food supply, while there are others that unfortunately do not have access to basic food requirements. In some places, the population has access to fresh produce while the others have to fulfil their demands from canned supplies. Approximately one third of the total food produced for human consumption globally is either lost or is wasted. (https://www.unep.org/thinkeatsave/get-informed/worldwide-food-waste#:~:text=Roughly%20one%2Dthird%20of%20the,tonnes%20%2D%20gets%20lost%20or%20wasted)

In this blog, we will discuss the ways in which we can reduce food wastage and contribute towards global sustainability. 

Shop Smart

One of the biggest reasons, food ends up in the waste bin is because we purchase more than we need. Shopping in bulk might be convenient and also economical but with the lack of planning, most of it could end up in waste. Take note of the inventory before making a list of the items that you need.

Educate yourself on shelf life of the produce

Elucidating on the point above, educating self on shelf life of food is essential and can help in using the produce accordingly. Shelf life varies across food items. Canned and packaged food items state the ‘best before’ date as well. 

Before throwing the food away

In today’s social media era, people are more inclined towards fresh-looking and taut produce and tend to throw away slightly soft or wilting produce. These produce are usually not bad for example; breads can be pulsed for making breadcrumbs. 

Food Storage

Increasing food longevity is highly dependable on the way it is stored. For instance, storing apples, bananas, and tomatoes apart from other perishables helps in keeping them fresh for longer time. 

Plan Ahead 

Planning weekly menus help in cutting back waste. Online tools and videos are very useful in planning menus that are applicable regionally. 

Evaluate gaps in your recycling efforts while food wastage is an alarming problem, it also touches a very prominent global issue – food packaging wastage. Almost all items that we consume require some kind of packaging, even fresh off-the-farms produce. It is advisable to turn to sustainable or reusable packaging. Single-use packaging usually uses plastic which ultimately end up polluting water bodies or in landfills. 

For metal packaging, instead of tossing the cans and containers in the bin, we should opt for conscious recycling. Aluminium foils and trays are 100% recyclable. Although it is not recycled to its full potential as it gets discarded with other waste. Aluminium scrap in Dubai is efficiently recycled by Lucky Recycling.

Lucky Group is working towards creating a sustainable future for the planet. The company also recycles other metals like steel, another commonly used metal for packaging that is infinitely recyclable.

Use of Metals in Aircrafts

When it was incepted, aircrafts used completely different components and compositions.  The first airplane built by the Wright brothers heavily used wooden apparatuses. As air travel grew in its early days and in-flight safety wasn’t a great deal as today, the seating consisted of wooden chairs. Over the years, aircraft designers, engineers, and manufacturers have taken in account multiple factors – from usability, functional requirements, maintenance costs, to sustainability, and made use of composite metals for building an efficient aircraft.

Let’s see how and which metals are used in aircrafts;

Aluminium 
Due to its low density and high strength, Aluminium is a highly dependable metal in aerodynamics. Engine of the first aircraft featured a 30-pound aluminium block. Since then, it has been used in mass-productions of commercial aircrafts. https://transport.world-aluminium.org/modes/aircraft/

Due to nature of its operation, high strength aluminium alloys are ideal to be used in airplane construction. To strengthen the body, alloy 7075 is used. It consists of copper, magnesium, and zinc. It is also resistant to corrosion, thereby reducing maintenance costs. 
https://www.experimentalaircraft.info/articles/aircraft-aluminum.php

Steel
Steel is up to three times stronger than aluminium. Since aluminium cannot be used on the skin surface of the aircraft due to its low resistance to heat, Steel is ideal for the same. The landing gear is also made of steel. In fact, steel comprises 11-13 percent of the aircraft. https://www.stainless-steel-world.net/mobile/blogs/273/high-strength-cra-ideal-for-landing-gear.html

Titanium
Titanium is an expensive metal with robust qualities and high endurance. It has excellent qualities like high temperature and corrosion resistance. Titanium can be found in the wings, landing gear, housing, fan blades, and pumps within the engine. 

Nickel Alloys
Nickel alloys can resist high temperatures and corrosion. They are also structurally tough having excellent creep resistance properties. These alloys are often used to make the turbines of the aircraft engines due to the immense heat the engine is exposed to. Nickel alloys retain their strength at raised temperatures and hence, they are perfect for this function. They are also found in exhaust valves, thermostat rods, tanks, and piping for liquefied gas storage. 

The United Arab Emirates economy is fueled by tourism. One of the biggest contributors is the thriving aviation. 

The country holds immense potential in aircraft metal recycling. As discussed above, aluminium is used in huge proportion in aircrafts. Metal scrap companies in Dubai are equipped to efficiently recycle and reuse the same. Lucky Recycling, part of Lucky group is the leading metal recycling companies in Dubai that deploys energy efficient recycling methods to recycle variety of metals found in an aircraft. Not only does it step-up in making the planet greener, but also contribute towards the country’s constant demand for recycled metal.
