Material properties

Steel is 100% recyclable


The material can be used in a variety of ways and variably for alloying, post-treatment and further processing in all possible product chains. 

  • Steel is magnetic, making it easy to sort and separate.
  • Steel can be easily cut, separated, pressed and transported. 
  • There are already established and functioning return systems and innovative (steel scrap) reprocessors.

In Germany, around 60 percent of the production value in the manufacturing sector is steel-intensive.
