Why Is Metal Recycling So Important?

in Metal

Metals have always been important in various aspects of our daily lives. They come to us in wide variety of form and shapes, and have become necessities in some cases. Since the industrial revolution we have been consuming more and more metals, be it Iron ore in construction, Aluminum in building vehicles and aero planes or even Copper the natural trace element which is used in a variety of applications being naturally antimicrobial. The main flaw in this system is the consumption, pointing to the population which indirectly points to the demand of any metal.

All the metals mentioned above are being mined on a daily basis. Iron ore being the most exploited for its multiple uses. Extracting ore from mother earth is not bad, but not in a way and a capacity that is environmentally degrading. How much more can we keep extracting from mines? More importantly we forget the energy that goes into processing these ore to produce fresh metals for manufacturing. With the ozone layer just under control, and the sea levels still rising due to global warming, why is there a need to keep damaging the environment. A simple way to avoid all this is to recycle. Recycling metals can actually utilize what we throw out in waste in millions of tones every year. Experts say that if all of the aluminum that is produced reaches the recycling plant, there will be no need to produce new virgin aluminum for manufacturing. The same applies for the other metals, in fact metals like copper and steel barely require a less than a quarter of energy to be recycled and brought into the production line as compared to fresh new metal. In fact the qualities of some metals actually improve after being recycled. The only thing that lacks these days is our human effort in this process to achieve a cleaner and greener planet. If only we could recycle and buy only recyclable items and if there existed a process designed by governments to streamline and process these goods quickly, along with better policies that push manufacturers towards using recycled goods. Recycling is the key to our future, and it's a power that completely lies in our hands.
