In the United States, steel manufacturing is an integral piece of the automotive manufacturing industry.  Iron and steel scrap is widely used as a raw material for the production of automotive metal components. In fact, the industry relies greatly upon the availability of steel and aluminum scrap.  These products can be recovered in various ways, including: automotive junkyards, industrial scrap metal waste, and even household steel or aluminum scrap metal.

Scrap Metal Recycling Conserves Natural Resources

By using recycled steel and aluminum scrap, automotive manufacturers and their suppliers are able to conserve raw materials, energy, and miles of landfill space.  This is because the re-melting of steel scrap requires much less energy than producing the same metal products from raw ore.  The metal recycling process also helps reduce the amount of metal scrap sitting in waste disposal facilities or simply abandoned in various places.  In fact, the steel recycling industry in the U.S. recycles millions of metric tons of steel scrap metal sourced from steel cans, old vehicles, appliances, construction waste, and more.   Interestingly, the most common source of steel scrap metal is from recycled automobiles.  After processing the automobile, the steel can then be re-used for a new vehicle, creating a more sustainable product life cycle.
