Posted on October 22, 2012 by - Scrap Metal Recycling

Detroit, MI, October, 2012 – Metal recycling companies like Ferrous Processing & Trading (FPT) are helping to further the positive effects of metal recycling in the United States.  The metal recycling industry not only helps build a healthier economy, but it also creates a healthier planet.  Recycling metal helps save enormous amounts of resources and energy that would otherwise be employed mining new ore.

“Our management and ownership share the same creative perspective toward dealing with the constantly evolving industry and technology.  Many of our signature successes for which we are recognized in the industry are the result of this creativity and commitment to innovative practices,” shares FPT’s President, Bill Wild.

The savings from these innovative metal recycling practices are significant.  For example, using recycled iron and steel in manufacturing processes can reduce energy costs by as much as 74%.  It also preserves valuable virgin ore by allowing the land reserves to be left untouched for future generations when lower impact extraction methods may be developed.

Metal recycling also results in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the mining and extraction processes that are eliminated. By recycling, in fact, the energy saved is enough to provide millions of US homes with a year’s worth of power.  For employees at FPT, these energy-saving processes foster a great sense of pride because each person knows they are helping create a healthier future.


“From our largest manufacturing customers to our smallest peddler supplier…from our senior executives to our yard laborers; we share a common commitment to doing the right thing,” explains Wild.
