Non-ferrous metals

Re-use of valuable non-ferrous metals

By definition, this fraction includes all metal alloys with a pure iron content of less than 50% and all metals other than iron. Comprising copper, aluminium, zinc, bronze, brass, lead, and gold, silver or platinum, this group thus also encompasses all white metals and precious metals. The value of the materials is comparatively high, the natural resources are limited. Their reuse is imperative, for ecological and economic reasons.

Non-ferrous metal extraction

The correct mixture of aluminium, gold, silver, platinum or copper keeps our household electronic devices running. After the useful life of the products, the numerous valuable materials in these appliance are retained in the cycle as far as possible. Electronic scrap (e.g., from small household appliances) is sorted by means of sensors and can, therefore, be re-used quickly. At SECONTRADE, you will find non-ferrous metals, the indispensable secondary raw material, at keenest prices.

Securing valuable resources

Metals have become an indispensable staple for mankind. Tools and machines cannot be made without them. But just like other resources, metals are available in limited quantities only. The following examples for aluminium and copper show the importance of using these metals sustainably and with a high degree of recycling.

Aluminium
Production t/a: 40,000,000 52 % Sustainable consumption t/a: 19,200,000 Required reduction t/a: 20,800,000
Copper
Production t/a: 16.000.000 95,5 % Sustainable consumption t/a: 558,000 Required reduction t/a: 15,342,000
