Different Uses of Scrap Metals

Scrap metal worth millions of dollars are used for different purposes globally. Whether they are ferrous or non-ferrous, scrap metals from iron to aluminium to copper can be used repeatedly in their life cycle.

Scrap metals are used for important purposes

Iron scrap which is extracted from sources like appliances, architectural structures, construction sites, cars, vehicles, and bridges are further recycled and used for various purposes. Iron scrap is used in internal parts in the manufacturing of automobiles. It is also used in the construction of aircrafts for various internal components and other parts in the transport and logistics chain. It is also used in the manufacturing of many materials like tins and cans. Using iron scrap helps to preserve the limited natural resources of this planet.

Another important scrap metal, aluminium, is also used for many commercial purposes and sectors like construction, packaging, consumer goods and factories.

Why industries are using scrap metals?

Scrap metal retains the original properties of the metal. So aluminium scrap or copper scrap or iron scrap has the same properties as its primary form. Hence, using scrap metal for different purposes than the primary metal is cheaper and also helps in the conservation of scarce resources. Hence, industries prefer recycled metal scraps as they can be bought at cheaper rates and used for similar purposes.

Globally there is an increase in the use of scrap metals which has accelerated the growth of metal scrap industry. This has paved way for many environmental benefits apart from added revenues for countries.
