In Season 1, Episode 3 of the series Repurposed, John Sacco continues on a journey through SSAB’s steel mill, where he witnesses steelmaking up close and personal. After leaving a recycling facility, recycled metals are transported to the mill, where they are sorted by grade and type. Later, they are melted inside an electric arc furnace (EAF) to create new steel.
Industry expert and ISRI President, Robin Wiener, discusses the historical prevalence of recycling and its future impact on society and the Earth. It plays a crucial role in reducing waste, conserving resources, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling also helps to create new products, including steel, which we use in our daily lives. Cozzi Recycling is pleased to be a part of making the supply chain more sustainable. Enjoy the episode.
