Minimises Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The process of recycling scrap metal results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to the production of new metal. Recycling steel, for instance, can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 58%.
The recycling and reusing of scrap metals lead to the creation of new jobs, contributing to economic growth. Additionally, it can lead to a lower trade deficit.
One of the greatest advantages of metal recycling is its repeatability. Metals, unlike some other materials, can be recycled almost infinitely without losing their properties, making them a sustainable resource for future use.
In conclusion, recycling scrap metal in Emerald plays a critical role in preserving the environment, conserving energy, and supporting the economy. It’s a practice that benefits everyone and should be encouraged on a global scale.
At SGS Metal Alloys, we take pride in responsibly recycling different types of scrap metal. We understand that you may not know which metals can be recycled and where to look for them. That’s why we’re here to provide helpful information on the types of scrap metal that we recycle.
Our services include aluminium, copper, brass and steel recycling.
Aluminium is one of the most widely recycled materials and is commonly found in beverage cans, car parts, window frames and electrical wires. Aluminium is lightweight yet strong and is 100% recyclable with no loss of quality or purity.
Copper is another type of scrap metal that we recycle. It can be found in old pipes, electronics and wiring systems. Copper has a high thermal and electrical conductivity, so it’s often used in wiring systems. It is also 100% recyclable with no loss of quality or purity.
