What are non-ferrous metals?
Non-ferrous metals are a metal, including alloys, that do not contain iron in appreciable amounts. These metals are used in various applications, generally in industrial environments as they have a lighter weight, they are beneficial, for example, to build machines where lightness is important.
Why is it important to recycle it?
Most of these metals are one hundred percent recyclable, for example, aluminum has the advantage of requiring only five percent of the energy necessary to return to the initial primary metal.
In order to recycle these metals, the scrap must be sorted and properly compacted. Non-ferrous waste materials are easy to handle because they are light, they are not combustible, they do not rust, they can be transported without major inconvenience.
