The Materials We Work With

We trade both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Knowing the difference between these two kinds of materials is essential to optimize and guarantee the recycling process.

 

Ferrous materials Vs Non-Ferrous Materials:

Ferrous metals are those that harbor a significant amount of iron in their chemical configuration. Non-Ferrous metals are those that do not contain a significant amount of iron in their composition.

Ferrous scrap is the most recycled material in the United States and Worldwide.

On average, the United States processes enough ferrous scrap every day to build 25 eiffel towers.

Recycling one car saves more than 2,500 lbs. of iron ore, 1,400 lbs. of coal, and 120 lbs. of limestone.

Manufacturing products from recycled aluminum saves up to 95 percent of the energy needed to manufacture them from virgin materials.

U.S. recyclers recover 85% to 95% of all aluminum in U.S. automobiles.
ISRI estimates that 50% to 60% of the aluminum consumed by U.S. mills comes from scrap.
