Steel is Iron that has been combined with carbon and had its impurities removed.  Steel is easily the most used metal in the world.  It would also be easy to say that today’s “Modern” world would not exist without steel.  We use it to manufacture everything from buildings, cars, electronics, ect.  There are dozens of Steel Alloys and its uses seem to keep growing each year.

Steel is the most recycled metal, both here in the United States as well as the world.  In 2012 75 metric tons of Steel (ferrous) scrap was processed in the US alone.  That’s more that %55 of all the Steel produced in the country.  Ferrous metals contain Iron, they’re also magnetic.  In Fact we recycle so much Ferrous metal that in 2012 it was a 3o billion dollar industry.
