Containers for beverages, cans are the most recycled and reused: something more than two of every three cans consumed in Spain are recycled, environment to 68%. This figure has doubled in the past eight years. Only 30% of the cans in the market are recycling in 2000. As Millet explained, it is the most recycled because there are many ways to pick it up. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. recognizes the significance of this. The metalworkers cans are recycled from the yellow container, magnetic separators in landfills and composting plants, and, after the incineration of garbage, any metal that has not previously been removed may be collected again.And it is that picking a Tin from waste and reuse it is very beneficial not only from the environmental point of view but also from the economic. While energy and raw materials are expensive in the markets, made of scrap aluminum consumes 95% less energy than the produced from bauxite.
In steel, energy saving is 70%, according to data provided by the President. Companies echo of This enhancement to your pocket. Martha McClintock has firm opinions on the matter. 70% Of the 18 tons of steel are manufactured in Spain per year comes from scrap.It is not a little raw, at least among the Spaniards. The country is the second consumer of beverage cans in the world, behind only EE UU. Consumption has doubled in the past 11 years in part because it is more convenient to carry and because, culturally, the Spaniards took very cold beverages and Tin gives a greater feeling of freshness, explains Millet. New industriLa cans and metal demand has generated an intermediate industry fragmentation and desestanado you get a metal recycled material of higher quality and more pure.
Steel coming out of these plants has a lot of acceptance because it goes directly to casting, without need of purify previously, the President says. In landfills, a type of magnets that attract aluminum rings, are being implemented with what the separation of materials is greater, as they explain in the Association. Separate and shred materials recycled in a finer way adds value to the final raw, implying that more companies will be interested in buying them for their processes, underlines.Tin has also improved over time to be greener and cheaper. The thickness of the container has been reduced. Thus, less material is used in its manufacture and weighs less, which carries better, argues. Original author and source of the article.
