Steel - The Permanent Material in the Circular Economy

A sustainable circular economy is one in which society reduces the burden on nature by ensuring resources remain in use for as long as possible. As a permanent material, steel is fundamental to achieving a circular economy. It is easy to reduce the weight of steel product, and steel components can effectively reused, remanufactured, or recycled.


All metal packaging from envases are made of tinplate. Tinplate is steel coated with a layer of tin, a permanent material.
A permanent material is one for which the inherent properties do not change during use and regardless of repeated recycling into new products. Its recycling does not necessarily require the addition of primary material or additives to enable the basic material function / properties.
