About the product

This study is a definitive reference for everyone in the steel-making industry in the industrialized countries. General considerations about steel and scrap quality such as clean steels, classifications and environmental considerations are presented. Methods for preparing scrap and the newly-developed notion of a 'design for recycling' are described. It analyzes the structure of steel-making costs, price of scrap, capital and operation costs of scrap processing facilities and foreign trade. National monographs on the scrap industry from nine countries are also included.
