Iron is needed in large quantities to produce steel and is used in many everyday products. When ferrous metals are supplied as primary raw materials, they have, for the most part, been extracted as ore from underground or open mines, which leaves scars on the landscape. By recycling the iron and steel in discarded electrical equipment, REMONDIS Electrorecycling recovers the supplies of ferrous metals that are already in production cycles and returns them in large volumes to metal processing businesses as secondary raw materials.
Iron and steel can be found in numerous types of electrical and electronic equipment. Once the appliances have been discarded, we recover these valuable ferrous metals so they can be returned to production cycles.
