How Recycling Scrap Metal Helps Environment


Recycling metals has a number of benefits and one of them is helping the environment. Primary Metal is acquired through mining of metal ores. Most of the metal ores are in desolate landscapes and mining these metal ores will result in destruction of landscapes.

By recycling metals, there will be no extraction of non-renewable metal ores. Recycling metals uses less energy when compared to smelting ore to create new metals. For instance, the amount of energy to make one can from raw materials is the same as the amount of energy required to make 20 cans from recycled metal.(Source: http://greeningforward.org/environmental-issues/waste/recycle/recycling-facts/)

Due to recycling, there is a large reduction in the emission of Greenhouse gases. Lesser amounts of Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are produced. The greenhouse effect resulting in global warming is a big threat to our environment. Although global warming has not been halted, recycling metals has significantly reduced the emission of these harmful gases to the atmosphere, thus preserving our Earth for future generations.

Recycling metals also reduces chemical pollution. If a metal is recycled, it doesn’t have to be imported from other countries via boat or train. Recycling metals reduces the emissions and amount of fuel that could have been used for transportation. Landfill sites are not only an unpleasant sight but also one of the largest sources of pollution. Recycling metals will help reduce the landfill sites.

Hence we see that recycling metals can help in preserving our environment. Look for metal recycling companies in Dubai for recycling of metals.
