According to the Bureau of International Recycling, almost 40% of the World’s steel production is extracted from scrap. Recycling one tonne of steel saves 642 kWh of energy, 1.8 barrels (287 liters) of oil, 10.9 million of British thermal unit energy, and 2.3 cubic meters of landfill space. Steel automobile frames consist of at least 25% of recycled steel and a typical electric appliance uses 75% of recycled steel. Metals are a limited resource, whose consumption, management and production echo to the need to adopt a recycling economy. Therefore, a booming metal recycling market. The information is based on a recent business intelligence report from IndustryARC, titled “Metal Recycling Market: by type (ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals); by end user industry (construction, industrial and others); & geography forecast (2018-2023).”

The recycling of non-renewable resources is often advocated as the solution to the potentially restricted supplies, and metal recycling is one of them. It refers to the process of recovering and processing scrap metal from obsolete metals. Metals are essential for the global economy, as they find application in manufacturing buildings, automotive industry extending to the massive production of mobile phones, computers, and other electronic equipment. Using recycled raw materials cuts down carbon dioxide emissions to great extent.
