Keywords: sustainable metals, recycling
Abstract:Metals are a key resource in today’s manufacturing processes. However, the environmental costs of procuring and processing new metals can potentially set companies back in their endeavors to be more environmentally friendly, while also increasing overhead expenses. One way to satisfy manufacturing needs, while minimizing costs and environmental impact is by using recycled metals and sustainable metal-making processing. Attendees will learn about the utility of various metals, while focusing on sustainable processing, recycling and production. Achieving a sustainable metals market is a viable and cost-effective way for manufacturers to improve their environmental stewardship – and their bottom line.
