Iron recycling and scrap iron price determination
Worldwide, the recycling process results in large amounts of scrap iron, two-thirds of the total annual consumption. This includes the waste products of steel factories. Despite this, some steel is lost because of, for instance, rusting, sinking of ships and oil rigs and because some areas are very remote from a steel factory, which make recycling unprofitable.
Remaining scrap iron is remelted during electro steel procedures. However, it is also essential in the supply for primary steel production in integrated steel factories, e.g. at Tata Steel in IJmuiden. Ion, just as zinc, is essential in living organisms. Iron shortages are dangerous to your health.
The prices of scrap iron and our purchase price for scrap iron, grit, heavy iron, iron turnings and scrap metal are based on the prices on the international iron market.
