  • Metals recycling is a ‘pyramid’ industry which includes many small, family owned companies, as well as large, international businesses.
  • All metals are made from non-renewable minerals and ores (such as iron-ore) found in the soils and rocks of the earth's crust.
  • Metal products such as steel and aluminium cans can be recycled through the kerbside recycling system.
  • Metals recycling protects the environment and saves energy.
  • Steel cans including aerosol (spray) cans, can be recycled through the kerbside collection system.
  • The manufacturing processes generally do not change the properties of the metals (except in alloys and other mixtures), only the shapes. Therefore
    recycling metals is a simple process of melting and reshaping.
  • Aluminium is made from an ore called bauxite. Australia is one of the largest producers of bauxite.
  • Converting bauxite to aluminium is not as simple as melting the ore and recovering the metal.
  • Molten salt electrolysis method uses activated metal waste as an anode. Recovery iron and chromium are collected as a deposit of a cathode.
  • Trace metals can play an important role in controlling primary productivity and major nutrient cycling.
  • High temperature solvent extraction method is the method that using the monotectic reaction and utilizes the difference of distribution ratio of solute element.
  • Tin-lead alloy (Sn+Pb) is used for solvent element because of forming the 2 liquid phase coexistence system with stainless steel and carbon steel
  • Aluminium recovered from recycling is far more efficient. Only of the energy is needed to melt and remake aluminium products from recycled aluminium cans.
  • Steel is also 100% recyclable and one of the most widely recycled materials.
  • Melting separation technology is the technology of separating the element containing the radioactive isotope in the radioactive metal waste, and reducing concentration of radioactivity.
  • Dragout reduction and recovery is an important P2 technique for metal finishing. It is a simple technology used by metal finishers to return plating chemicals to their original bath before they become integrated into a waste stream.
  • A new technique is available to predict where metal quality is lost in the recycling process could make recycling cost-effective and reduce the need for raw material inputs.
  • After utilizing the P2 techniques previously mentioned, recovery techniques can be used to recover metal for reuse. Recovery should begin with segregation of waste streams.
  • Metals recycling is a £4.5billion UK industry, processing ferrous and non ferrous metal scrap into vital secondary raw material for the smelting of new metals. The industry employs over 8,000 people and makes a net contribution to UK balance of trade.
  • Manufacturing of metals continues to be one of the largest UK manufacturing sectors, employing more people, and contributing more value to the UK economy
