Industries That Are Generating Scrap Metals

There should not be a concept of “junk” on this Earth when it comes to scrap metals; every scrap has some value to it. Metals offer great value when recycled and reused in Dubai scrap trading. The recycled metals can be used repeatedly without losing their physical or chemical properties. Let us look at the top industries that produce huge amounts of scrap metals:

Construction and demolition industry 

The construction industry serves wide range of scrap metals like aluminium frames which are used in windows and doors, copper tubes, stainless steel structure material, brass fittings mainly used in plumbing items, copper electrical wires, metal beams, iron bars and pipes, etc. A lot of scrap is produced in terms of left over material during the construction of new building or at the time of demolition, when it generates scrap metals. The industry generates about 32.4% (https://www.worldsteel.org/media-centre/press-releases/2014.html) of the total metal scrap.

Automobile industry 

The automobile industry produces tones of scrap metals each week. Iron and steel make up approximately 70% of a vehicle’s weight. (https://tampasteel.com/the-top-3-steel-consuming-industries/) The process results in the significant metal leftovers. These scrap leftovers are then melted, reused, or sent for recycling in the Dubai scrap yards.

Packaging

Aluminium and steel is used widely in food packaging applications having excellent barrier properties and extending product life. Apart from food products, metal packaging is also used for the packaging of paint and chemical materials.

The well-established modern recycling technologies for metal packaging around the world have contributing to educate consumers about the sustainable qualities of metal for recycling.

Appliance industry 

Appliance industry produces a plethora of scrap during the manufacturing process. The industry uses the scrap metals as raw materials to produce their products. These raw material is cut or moulded into required form. However, this results in the production of scrap. Around 15.6% (https://www.worldsteel.org/media-centre/press-releases/2014.html) of scrap metals are generated from the industry.

The scrap metals hold a great value that has been recognized by many business owners who have been converting scrap and reaping monetary profits. Lucky group is one of the few in metal recycling industries which do not only recycle scrap metals in shaping the economy in general but also contributing for the sustainable environment.

How Does Stainless Steel Contribute to the Food Industry?

Food comes in contact with metals in stages of its processing. To prevent transfer of harmful elements from metals to food, it is important to understand the type of interaction and select the suitable metal for food handling depending on the food processing. 

Stainless steel is extensively used in food industry due to their inherent resistance to corrosion. It can be formed into complex shapes and sterilized without deterioration. Also, it also does not impart any color and flavor to food, making it ideal for the food industry.

Most of the stainless steel used in food industry contains chromium in the range of 16 – 18 %. This provides optimum corrosion resistance in wide range of food and beverage media. A great example of industry-level usage includes brewing vessels, storage facilities, and milk tankers. 

Austenitic grades are used for storage and transportation of corrosive food products. For food containing salt, grades containing Molybdenum are suitable. 

316L/1.4404 is referred to as “food grade” in food industry. Another popular grade is 304L/1.4307.

Ferritic stainless steel is magnetic in nature and is used in household appliances. It offers corrosion resistance for when high corrosion resistance is not required. 

Martensitic grades have high levels of carbon and is hardened by heat treatment. This is used where high wear resistance is required.  420/1.4021 is used for the making knives. It retains sharpness even after prolonged use. 

Duplex grades offer high resistance to corrosion caused by saline solutions at high temperatures. It is used in custard and vinegar making, manufacturing of sauces, cheese making, and fish-canning plants. 

Selecting the correct grade of steel and alloys in food industry is a very important decision. It involves considerable costs in terms of procuring and set-up. Dubai is one of the biggest gastro-hubs. This means the demand for stainless steel is constant. This however also means stainless steel scrap ends up in Dubai scrap yards

    Brass in Automotive Industry

     Brass is one of the most versatile alloys created by a composition of copper and zinc.

    It is debated that Brass is known to have been found since the ancient times. Its true value as an alloy was not understood until the post-medieval period.  

    A muted yellow color somewhat similar to gold and the most noticeable alloy has great importance used in electric components, engineering, used in different accessories like watches, design materials, musical instruments, decorate buildings, particularly interiors and sanitary ware, plumbing installations, fittings and valves etc. 

    Due to its strength and heat-resistance, brass auto parts are widely utilized for different automobile vehicles as well like cars, truck, bikes etc.

    As development in automotive industry, manufacturers are designing the components made of brass with industrial innovations and more advance technologies that are fully competitive and lower in material costs compare to aluminium counter parts. As base metals for radiators, copper and brass require fewer manufacturing steps has longer life with high quality features.

    The greatest advantage of using brass in multiple applications is that it is a sustainable metal. It is a known fact that brass product supplier and manufacturers throughout the world depend on recycled brass scrap for their resources.  The metal from recycled radiators will be significantly easier to re-melt. In fact, this alloy retains its original structure even after brazing. 

    There are many other usages of brass and brass alloys. The need for brass is increasing and to meet the needs it is necessary that brass should be available in greater amount.  Sources of brass scrap are limited in Dubai. The main scrap buyers in Dubai is Lucky Recycling; a division of Lucky Group.

    RECYCLING IS A MUST FOR EVERY MODERN CITY

    The Middle East has grown both economically and demographically in recent years having very modern cities like Dubai. As our cities grow and move towards a brighter future, so does the population within it. Having a moderately populated country helps in improving the national income of the country as a whole.

    But along with such advancement comes the question of waste disposal. Waste disposal here is not an issue; the issue here is about recycling. How many of us in Dubai actually make an effort to recycle? The effort lies in not dumping all the waste together but in segregating it. It is not a difficult task to follow and one can accomplish such a task by simply having different bins for different items right in our homes. Once we begin to follow such a regime, it becomes a part of our daily lives and works for the betterment of our own future.

    The same trash that we segregate at home follows their individual paths into recycling facilities and then they take up the tedious job of processing and providing scrap back again into raw materials for manufacturers. Scrap buyers in Dubai like Lucky Recycling, a division of the Lucky Group have done a great job in taking care and helping in the problem of disposal of metals in Dubai. The Lucky Group’s experience and association with multiple countries in the Middle East helps the environment in getting rid of all the scrap metal while reducing the need for mining which damages our beautiful planet.

    Landfills: Recovering Value in Scrap Metals

     Billion tons of waste is generated each year (https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/handle/10986/30317). Out of this waste, a major part includes metals. Majority of these wastes are incinerated or dumped into landfills which could have become valuable resources for the recycling industries.

    Extensive programs are in progress in many countries that are exploring several ways of recovering metals from the existing landfills. It is a cost-effective proposition that is encouraging all the leading countries to consider doing so. Besides cost-effectiveness, the extraction of scrap metals from landfills is a stride towards cleaner environment. 

    Why metal extraction from landfills is needed?

    Aluminium alloy manufacturers in Dubai are suggested to utilize the metals from the landfills, which would prove to be cost effective and environment-friendly. This is testament to the fact that benefits from extracting the metal are not solely profit-oriented. However, recovering metal from these landfills is a cumbersome job and takes some time and effort. Many research programs are making commendable findings to discover a sustainable method to segregate these metals from the trash. 

    Companies like the Lucky Group undertake copper recycling in Dubai, with an environment-friendly approach. The metals extracted are reintegrated into a usable component, and then sold to the firms for producing new products. Landfill extraction also decreases the problem of lack of availability of landfill space. Not every place could be used for landfill and space which is once used could be excavated and then reused, giving significant benefits to the environment.

    A sundry of Dubai scrap yards is looking to increase their profits by extracting metals from these landfills. Besides, these scrap yard owners along with the landfill regulatory bodies are also finding ways to have a sustainable way of conducting their business. Extraction of metals from such landfills could address the problem and be a splendid solution for the environment and the economy.

    How can we co-relate Metal abundance, Recycling and Price?

     The abundance of metals in the earth’s crust and the human’s constant exploitation of the planet to dig out the metals for his uses have made recycling an unspoken post process. The recycling and reuse industry has been playing a major part in the economy of a nation. Copper recycling in Dubai is one such example which provides employment to many people. The abundance of metallic waste makes it easier and cheaper to recycle instead of mining its ore and refining it. 

    Extraction of raw metals vs recycling metals

    The extraction of metals from the soil would be followed by refining through several steps until a usable alloy or desired purity of the metal is achieved. The process involves the emission of many hazardous gases into the environment and also the loss of certain biodiversity of the place. It is reported that recycling a metal will cost around 50 US dollars to 150 US dollars per ton of the metal, which is still better than the extraction of metal. (https://www.epa.gov/recycle)

    Recycling of metals saves you a lot of costs and is environment friendly. Be it copper, aluminium, or any other metal, the recycling would help to get already refined state of the metal which could be tweaked a bit to meet your requirement. It is reported that recycling aluminium would save around 90 percent of the energy, which makes it crucial to recycle this metal. The recycling of metal also saves the environment from the hazardous gases emitted during its refining and extraction. (https://www.aluminum.org/advocacy/top-issues/aluminum-recycling#:~:text=Producing%20recycled%2C%20or%20secondary%2C%20aluminum,new%2C%20or%20primary%2C%20aluminum.) Aluminium alloy manufactures in Dubai should consider recycling metals to have better profit margins than extracting the metal from its ore. Metal scrapping or recycling in major cities, like Copper scrap in Dubai will give room to a lot of employment opportunities. It would also drop the rate of import of metals and transportation charges which would incur in transporting the metals. Many scrap buyers in Dubai also get benefitted when recycling of the metal is considered.

    The advancement in recycling technology has made room for efficient metal recycling. However, recycling and the plethora of benefits it provides supersedes the need for additional mining. It is also a step towards preserving the reserves and ensuring a constant supply of the already depleting resources.

Aluminium is tremendously versatile which has broad range of properties, chemical & mechanical compositions. An Aluminium alloy is an alloy in which Aluminium is the predominant metal. The alloying elements used most frequently by aluminium alloy manufacturers are magnesium, copper, silicon, zinc and manganese.

    Aluminium and its alloys are used quite extensively in the production of engineering structures, transportation facilities and packaging. The various properties of aluminium that make it a superior metal are as follows:

    Durability: Although these alloys tend to lose a bit of strength at tremendously high temperatures, their strength increases at sub-zero temperatures. This important property makes aluminium an extremely useful low-temperature alloy.

    Corrosion resistant: Aluminium alloys also have a strong resistance to corrosion. This Property of aluminium is a result of its reactions to the atmosphere. This protective oxide skin that is created due to the atmosphere, shields it from weathering conditions, chemicals and acids.

    Good electrical conductor: It is also an extremely good electrical conductor and is used more than copper even though the latter is a better conductor. This is because of its low density and its high cost efficiency. (https://www.azom.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=1446)

    Malleable: Like gold, aluminium is an extremely malleable metal and can be cast into many forms. Aluminium can easily be rolled, forged, hammered and stamped into a variety of shapes. Aluminium can also have a wide variety of surface finishes and does not produce toxic fumes when burned at high temperatures. . (https://socratic.org/questions/why-are-metals-malleable)

    Light weight: Aluminium is very light weight and has a low density. This makes it an excellent choice of material in the manufacturing of airplanes. It also makes aluminium easier and cheaper to ship and transport. . (http://transport.world-aluminium.org/modes/aircraft/)

    Aluminium is 100% recyclable and recycled aluminium is identical to the virgin product. This makes it a much more cost-effective source material for production runs. (https://www.azom.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=1446). Because of its various utilities and abundant availability, recycling companies in UAE and scrap metals yard in Dubai have come to realize the immense value of this precious metal.

    It is an effective option to streamline recycling process for a holistic waste management. Barter system was the main method of transaction in ancient times. However, the concept of monetary transactions and different methods of trading’s evolved but still the barter system can be observed like street hawkers giving metals utensils in exchange for old clothes or plastic, housewares or exchange of newspapers.

    Many NGO’s are serving community through working on projects where they give back to the society locally green fresh good in exchange of collecting waste scrap items from them like aluminium cans, newspaper, cardboard, glass or electronic waste and selling it to local scrap dealer.

    Some of the schools are giving awareness by encouraging students to deposit recyclable items to improve the infrastructure of the school in exchange of canteen coupon. 

    Actually, the idea is to raise awareness among individuals the impact of recycling in building healthy environment.

    Bartering can go up a notch and be practiced on a larger industrial scale as well. People should not discard metal made objects. Instead, they can sell to Recycling companies in UAE.  

    Scrap buyers in Dubai then further recycle the scrap metals for various purposes.  Using scrap metal instead of new metal is economical to industries and it reduces extra cost. Thus, money is saved and enhances businesses and serves the community. 

    Lucky Recycling; a part of Lucky Group, ensures environment sustainability and generates value from waste. To find out more about the wide range of recycling simply contact us today.

    SOME USEFUL TIPS: 

    • Aluminum foil can be used in many different ways. Wrapping aluminium foil around the tip of banana keeps the banana fresh and makes it last longer. 
    • Iron used for pressing clothes can gather rust over a period of time. The rust can be scrapped off by using aluminum foil.  

    This ensures optimum utilization of the resource and also promotes sustainability where demand of recycled metal surging rapidly, scrap metal trading is flourishing in Dubai.

    We are surrounded by metal works, both inside or outside our houses. Instead of discarding old or broken-down household objects, these should be sent for recycling. 

    The metal recycling companies in Dubai recycle the scrap aluminium for various purposes. The multifaceted use of aluminium makes it a high demand metal in industrial as well as household sector. 

    However, recycling aluminum is an ecologically beneficial method to cut down the greenhouse gases. Besides, recycling aluminium takes only a tiny fraction of energy as compared to the production of new aluminium.

    Have an old car that nobody wants?

    Recycling Mantra - Contributes towards sustainability and ensures optimum usage of resources.


    So you ended up keeping and maintaining that old car over the years, but now with the new emission norms, it can no longer be driven. That old beauty which you have used down the years has now turned into a beast of burden that nobody wants to buy.

    A lot of car lovers get stuck up in such situations where they simply cannot get rid of a vehicle. This can happen over time because they get too outdated or because their maintenance costs increase to a level that they become too expensive to own. Rising fuel costs are not too helpful in such a situation either.

    The next best thing that one could do is find another owner or let it just lie there in the parking lot getting covered in dust. After a couple of months, such vehicles eventually end up getting scrapped at the junk yards.

    What does one do? If you love the environment, the best thing you could do, is to take your vehicle to a car recycler. Car recyclers are not scrap buyers in Dubai! They are a team of field experts who would disassemble or shred your car completely, in a step-by-step manner. They would either quote you a lumsum price for your car or give you a price for the different parts individually. 

    This helps the environment by not discarding the entire car, with all the lubricants, and oils intact, which eventually leak out (including toxic substances from batteries) and damage the environment. Additionally the car owner get better value as well that helps channel the various metals that can be used and helps them reach scrap metal yards in Dubai

    Metal scrap companies in Dubai would then segregate the ferrous & non-ferrous scrap metals and re-process them into raw materials suitable for various industries around the world  or melt them into ingots which gets delivered to manufacturers; eventually reaching the production line as a new product.

    So the next time you know someone who is about to junk their car, tell them what they could do to help save the environment.
