Scrap recycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions by requiring significantly less energy to manufacture products from recyclables than virgin materials and by avoiding land-filling.
Energy saved using recycled materials is up to:
|92 % for aluminum||90 % for copper||87 % for plastic|
|68 % for paper||56 % for steel||34 % for glass|
Scrap recycling conserves natural resources:
Recycling one tone of:
- Paper saves 3.3 cubic yards of landfill.
- Steel conserves 2500 lbs. of iron ore, 1400 lbs. of coal and 120 lbs. of limestone.
- Aluminum conserves more than 5 metric tons of bauxite ore and 14 megawatt hours of electricity.
