Why Recycle Scrap Tungsten?

The Importance of Tungsten Carbide Recycling

It may be a bit of a surprise to see a metal recycling company asking for a reason why it exists in the first place, but bear with us. China is currently the world’s largest tungsten consumer and producer. Since 2005, they have been increasing imports of tungsten, scrap carbide, and high speed steel while limiting tungsten production. In addition, a 2013 U.S. Geological Survey says that 61% of the world’s estimated tungsten reserves are in the communist country.

The average American is aware of the recycling done in our country – bottles, cans, newspapers, and electronic devices such as cell phones or iPods. But what about the lesser known items? There are many materials that can be given new life by being reused. Appliances are a great example, with both Goodwill and the Steel Recycling Institute as options.

Tennis shoes are another perfect example, as Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program transforms old shoes into flooring for playgrounds and athletics.
