Metal recycling is a globally established and competitive industry. In the UK, the metal recycling sector is worth more than $5.6 billion and supplies manufacturers with environmentally friendly material all around the world^.
Steel is the worlds most recycled material, having the ability to be recycled infinitely with no degradation. Studies* have shown that more than 85% of steel is recyclable at the end of a building cycle. Each year, more than 500 million tonnes of steel is recycled worldwide – this equates to 180 Eiffel towers every day.
A minimal amount of waste is generated when using light gauge steel. A further study~ has shown that light gauge steel framing contains a minimum of 25% recycled steel. This highlights that light gauge steel is more environmentally friendly than other more traditional methods of building.
