Stainless steel is a hygienic and corrosion resistant material with a highly aesthetic finish.
Therefore, it becomes an attractive material for various industries: large and small appliance manufacturing, the automotive industry use many components made of this metal, in construction it is used for aesthetic finishes (façades, railings, etc.) and in the manufacture of urban furniture, and so on.
All the above industries produce scrap, while manufacturing or in their replacement, but this scrap can be sold to make a profit.
