Scrap Management
Scrap Management

Optimizing scrap to capture performance and environmental benefits

Our scrap management methodology is tailored to suit both local conditions and customer requirements. Cleaner, denser scrap requires less electricity to process, which provides our customers with environmental and performance benefits.

Less slag generation leads to lower CO₂ emissions and energy costs. We also recover and return scrap to the steelmaking process, reducing the quarrying of virgin raw materials. Our ScrapMaster™ proprietary software accurately tracks scrap by grade with full traceability and real-time inventory reporting. ScrapMaster™ allows furnace scrap charges to be precisely and consistently prepared to the required recipe.
