Stainless steel scrap

The production of steel, made into stainless steel by the addition of special elements such as chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni) and molybdenum (Mo), has been growing worldwide for decades. This sustainable growth would be inconceivable without the use of secondary raw materials. Recycled secondary materials substitute primary materials, thereby sustainably conserving natural resources. At the same, the use of secondary raw materials has a positive impact on the carbon footprint due to the lower energy requirements. Throughout the world stainless steel plants are therefore using recycled materials. The share of secondary raw materials in stainless steel production is around 80 % here.

Paul Jost GmbH is specialised in providing the global stainless steel industry with secondary raw materials in the form of stainless steel scrap, focusing on chromium/nickel as well as chromium/nickel/molybdenum scrap in this business segment.
