The Scrap Metal Recycling Process
Without getting overly technical, the process of metal recycling incorporates a few different steps – collection, sorting, shredding, melting, and remanufacturing.
Mass collection of scrap metal is the first step in the process and would include both industrial and commercial sources. When the demand for scrap metal is high, prices are also high. Once collected, the scrap metal is processed–first crushed and then shredded.
Shredded materials are magnetically separated into ferrous metals (containing iron) and non-ferrous metals (without iron). Other impurities are removed from non-metallic materials (paint or plastic). The idea is to isolate the purest possible form of any particular scrap metal.
Large furnaces are used to melt and further purify each specific metal at the melting stage. The idea at this stage is to ensure the highest quality end product. This new “raw material” will be used to re-manufacture new products containing high-quality recycled metal.
