Iron is one of the most used versatile metal in the world. Normally Iron is found in ores. Iron ores are rocks from which iron is extracted for the purpose of processing iron which in turn is further reformed to produce reinforced steel bars. Iron ores are not pure, they contain elements like Sulfur, Phosphorus, Carbon etc. These elements are present in high percentage which results in brittleness and less tensile strength for the metal.
Iron is the most important metal for Industrial purposes.Steel, the most versatile alloy of Iron drastically changed the economic status of the world. Do you know that steel industry can be classified as a Green Industry, but you might wonder how? It’s simple, Recycling.
One might wonder how TMT bars can be a good news for the environment, the fact of the matter is the most TMT bars are made of steel. Steel is the most recycled material on the planet, one of the reasons for it is the fact that recycled steel does not experience any loss in quality or strength. Steel is so popular for recycling, that in the year 2017 more steel was recycled that all the other recyclables combined. When talking pure numbers, just by recycling 1 kg of steel, it can cause reduction of 2 kgs of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Recycling steel also reduces the spread of landfill, as the materials can get reprocessed, thereby saving raw materials.
