The use of stainless steel scrap in the production of stainless steel remains as important as ever.
This secondary raw material is, indispensable if the increasing demand for the necessary nickel units brought about by the constantly growing stainless steel production is to be met.
In addition, stainless steel scrap is normally traded at lower prices than primary nickel and chrome bearers and also enables shorter and more efficient tap-to-tap times thanks to its relatively fast melting and its high density.
ELG fulfils the important task of providing the link between our approx. 4,000 suppliers and the stainless steel works of this world.
We constantly purchase all kinds of stainless steel scrap, i.e. practically all kinds of alloyed scrap that contain nickel, chrome, or molybdenum as their main alloy elements.
This includes all forms, such as new production scrap or obsolete scrap, be it as solids, turnings, bands, residues, blocks or runnings.
We also buy primary products such as pure metals or ferro-alloys.
These materials are professionally processed by ELG so that they can then be sold as a quality product.
