Steel is an iron alloy containing carbon and is the most recycled material in the world. Since it does not lose its physical properties during the process, it can be used for the same applications as steel produced from virgin material. The most commonly recycled items are scrap from industrial processes, and end-of-life products such as containers, appliances, industrial machinery.
At Deltasteel we strive to become a sustainable company applying the concept of recycling across all our activities. We believe that such behavior is likely to generate benefits for all stakeholders involved in the production process and encourages a better understanding of recycling possibilities.
Our Group works closely with its suppliers by enhancing the value of waste materials from integrated and EAF steelmaking processes, as well as downstream processes such as rolling, cutting and finishing. These recycled products, as a matter of fact, can be used as secondary raw material in either steel production or in other minor applications that are increasingly attractive in today’s economy.
For this reason we are proud to be an important partner to many steel mills, recycling their by-products and giving new life to these unique materials: we generate economic value from the waste material of the steel mills paying particular attention to the processing costs.
Our activity is environmentally friendly as it helps to reduce the amount of waste material that needs to be disposed of. Plus, the reuse and revaluation of waste materials lowers the cost of sourcing raw materials and saves energy in the production process.
