Similar to the process of ferrous metals, stainless steel is sorted from other recyclable metals which are then compacted and cut into smaller pieces before it is melted down and cast into slabs or ingots. It can be infinitely recycled as it does not lose its properties during the process.
- Up to 90% of stainless steel used is recycled.
- 1 tone of stainless steel saves 1,000 kg of iron ore, 55 kg of limestone and 630 kg of coal
- Diverts brass from the landfill
