Sustainability

Did you know that stainless-steel is 100% recyclable?

Not only is stainless-steel durable and low maintenance, it’s also a 100% recyclable commodity.  The majority of stainless-steel produced today has already repurposed. And although some stainless-steel will find its way to landfills or other disposal sites, there are no expected detrimental effects to soil or ground water.

Stainless-steel products are designed to have a long life; often spanning over several decades. The main alloying elements of stainless-steel, (chromium, nickel and molybdenum), are all highly valuable and can easily be recovered and separated from other materials.

So how does stainless-steel improve modern day life?

Stainless steel has many environmental and social benefits. Stainless steel products enable us to lead a healthier life and are cleaner for the environment as well:

  • Improvements in air quality
  • Reduction in the use of fossil fuels
  • Keeps water clean
  • Reduces waste
  • Saved costs for consumers and producers.
