“We act locally, but we think globally”
Sustainability is one of the latest subjects in social and environmental conscience, as well as in technologies for the future. When we hear the word "sustainability" we tend to think of sources of renewable fuels, reduce carbon emissions, protect the ecosystem, and try to strike a balance between our planet's health and technological innovation.
But how does scrap recycling benefit the environment?
Recycling of scrap metal requires significantly less energy than the manufacture of raw material metals.
On average, the estimated energy saved using recycled metals is more than 50% for iron and steel, and for aluminium and copper it reaches 90% and 95%, respectively. Because metal can be recycled and reused indefinitely, scrap recycling allows us to preserve the finite resources we have on Planet Earth, contributing to a more sustainable future for global and local economies and environments.
As a Metal Recycling Centre, Sucatas Pinto is helping to create a more sustainable industry. We protect local and global environment. Since May 2017, our company is certified under Norm ISO 14001 Environmental Quality Management System.
