Iron is a strong, magnetic, hard metal typically silver-grey in colour. Iron occurs naturally within the Earth and the human body. Still, in terms of industry, it’s one of the most used metals and has many applications – mainly due to its low manufacturing cost and strength when produced.
Iron is a ferrous material with high magnetic properties. Steel is an alloy made with Iron containing carbon and remains the most recycled material in the world.

Recycling Iron and its environmental benefits
The recycling of Iron has become a vital part of the 21st-century steel industry, improving its profitability whilst minimising its impact on the broader environment. The use of secondary ferrous metals instead of ore extraction dramatically reduces CO2 emissions, energy and water consumption and overall air pollution. The recycling of existing scrap iron into steel makes for more efficient use of our planet’s natural resources.
