Ferrous metals are among the world's most important industrial materials. 2017 alone saw the production of around 1.7 billion tons of steel - most of it from secondary raw materials. Worldwide, scrap metal made up 40 percent of steel production. In Europe, the figure was even higher. And the higher the percentage of scrap metal per ton, the lower the greenhouse gas emissions.
