The Plansee Group is striving to achieve a high level of self-sufficiency when it comes to cobalt as a raw material by ensuring its supply primarily through the collection and recycling of hard metals. 22 (2) “New scrap” is manufacturing scrap (grindings, turnings, webbing, skimmings, off-spec material) generated downstream from the primary mill that is not recycled internally, but rather enters into commerce and is traded back to the source primary mill or marketed through scrap yards and brokers.   Nucor also enjoys the distinction of recycling more steel than any other U. S. firm and it operates some 23 scrap-based steel production mills. In , Nucor earned $ million and made slightly over $19 billion dollars in sales. The firm owns plants and sales facilities located in several other states, including Texas and Indiana. Texas.

It was scrap-based and his thought process was, if we build something based on scrap as opposed to the traditional iron ore—using a blast furnace, which is a traditional integrated steel process—we would have a tremendous cost advantage because at that point, scrap frankly was considered a waste product.
