If there is one metal scrap which any country would want more of, it has to be steel scrap. Automobiles, ship breaking and construction, being the main sources of steel scrap, have been advantageous to steelmakers and casting industry. With most steel scrap being melted and reused, maximum part from ship breaking sources is re-rolled into rods and bars. Thus, the steel scrap recycling makes the construction industry bloom.
Steel has the most outstanding characteristic of being endlessly recycled, without compromising any material qualities. Steel plants are known to utilise various steel scraps, internal and end-of-life/fabrication/metalwork being the most common. Internal steel scrap include steel residues from production processes. On the other hand, the external steel scrap includes end-of-life steel products. At Vic Recycle Metals, all the steel scrap is purchased in accordance to governing quality and purity. The steel scrap sold to us serves as a primary input for steelmaking through induction furnace and electric furnace.
The sources of steel scrap are many, but the collection at our stainless steel scrap yard is categorised into the following categories.
