Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal Recycling Provides an Array of Positive Benefits

Posted on September 18, 2013 by - Scrap Metal Recycling

Scrap metal recycling provides infinite possibilities for sustainable resources.  In our modern society, many individuals, small businesses, and large corporations use metals in their everyday activities ranging from small household projects to national transportation projects or industrial work.  Non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, lead, nickel tin, and zinc are common household and industrial materials, and all share a unique feature.  Non-ferrous scrap metal can be recycled an unlimited number of times without altering any of their chemical properties or losing their integrity and strength.  At Ferrous Processing & Trading, we encourage our clients to find ways to optimize their non-ferrous scrap metal fpt-03recycling efforts.

What does this mean for our customers?

Non-Ferrous Scrap Bring a Higher Value – Because of their unique ability to be recycled indefinitely, non-ferrous scrap metals can be more valuable than ferrous metals to recycle.  For everyday individuals, this means more money for your old appliances, furniture, or automotive parts.  Aluminum can be found in a variety of household items and is readily accepted at any of the Ferrous Processing & Trading processing centers for a competitive cash value.

For businesses and industrial clients, non-ferrous metals can be an important part of the scrap metal recycling process.  Whether companies gather and process manufacturing or industrial scrap or are recycling old equipment, helpful professionals at Ferrous Processing & Trading (FPT) can help each client develop an effective recycling process to maximize their profits and the value of each material.

Non-Ferrous Scrap Has Diverse Applications – One reason non-ferrous scrap metal is so valuable is because it is useful in a wide variety of applications.  Non-ferrous metals can have distinct properties that make them optimal for different purposes.  For example, aluminum is lightweight and strong.  Recently, aluminum is used more and more in the automotive industry to build strong vehicle frames that are lightweight and more fuel efficient.  Metals like copper are used for their exceptional electrical or heat conductivity in mechanical applications such as wiring or piping.   When you recycle your non-ferrous scrap metals, they can be used again for each of these unique purposes, serving as a sustainable resource for today’s technology.

Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal Recycling Helps the Environment – When you recycle your old aluminum, copper, lead, and zinc materials, you help to create sustainable resources for future manufacturing and industrial applications.  By using recycled non-ferrous metals, companies can help preserve natural resources and lower emissions that result from virgin mining operations.  Furthermore, it takes significantly less energy to manufacture items from recycled metals than it does to create them from new materials.  In this way, scrap metal recycling plays a significant role in helping preserve our environment and natural resources.
