Non-Ferrous Metals — A NOW PROBLEM
With the expectation of radioactive and toxic metals, all metals (ferrous or non-ferrous) can be recycled.
As demand for commodities continues to rise, the strain put on the Earth’s natural resources is becoming increasingly critical. We’ve analysed the data; If projected demand upholds, known reserves of bauxite could potentially run out in our lifetime. That’s not a problem for future generations if we want to meet demand – that’s a now problem. we have to shift reliance from mining onto secondary sources and build sustainable infrastructure now to accommodate future demand.
WHY ARE NON-FERROUS METALS RECYCLED?
Non-ferrous metal recycling services are in operation all around the globe, on various different scales for many types of metals. Scrap metals are collected, sorted, treated, smelted, recast, and sold to be reused – in a completely circular loop, that for most metals (such as aluminium or copper), doesn’t result in any deterioration of quality.
As a whole, producing 1 ton of recycled aluminium reduces carbon emissions by 95% and the process requires 95% less energy compared to virgin mining. These reductions are significant, even more so when scaled up to the tonnage produced globally. Furthermore, recycling non-ferrous metal will have a substantial impact on the volume of metal waste sat in landfills – in recycling aluminium alone, 7.2 cubic metres of landfill is removed on average to produce 1 ton of aluminium. That adds up quick.
