Other Information

Using recycled products instead of virgin materials during manufacturing, dramatically reduces pollution and carbon emissions, reduces energy and water consumption, and frees up much needed space for necessary landfill.

Here are an example of some of the savings made on carbon emissions by using recycled materials:

  • By using a tonne of recycled steel rather than primary iron ore, carbon emissions are reduced by 2.1 tonnes
  • When one tonne of aluminium is recycled, carbon emissions are reduced by a staggering 7.9 tonnes
  • For every tonne of computers recycled, carbon emissions are reduced by approximately 4.0 tonnes

The BMRA (British Metals Recycling Association) advises that energy savings from re-using major non ferrous commodities are:

  • Aluminium 95%
  • Copper 85%
  • Lead 65%
  • Zinc 60%
