Spotlight on ferrous metals
The world needs steel
Ferrous metals are among the world's most important industrial materials. 2011 alone saw the production of around 1.5 billion tonnes of steel - most of it from secondary raw materials. Worldwide, scrap metal made up 44.2 percent of steel production. In Europe, the figure was even higher - 55.6 per cent. And the higher the percentage of scrap metal per tonne, the lower the greenhouse gas emissions.
We deal in raw materials ranging from steel scrap in accordance with the European Steel Scrap Specification to used metal and foundry scrap.
