Steel: The most recycled material on Earth

Steel’s most valuable property is its ability to be recycled many times without any loss to its inherent qualities. On its journey of reincarnation from washing machines to cars, oil cans to ocean liners or railway tracks, steel saves precious raw materials and minimises energy consumption. With global recovery rates averaging more than 83%, steel is one of the most sustainable and environmentally important products made.
