According to the World Steel Organisation, steel is the most recycled material on the planet. In the developed economies, significant volumes of steel scrap are generated from end-of-life products and infrastructure. Data from Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) indicates that, on average, more than 500 million tonnes has been recycled every year since 2007.
