Why didn’t North America recycle our own steel? BBC NEWS: Wednesday, 11 September, 2002
In the north Indian state of Punjab, scrap metal salvaged from the debris of the World Trade Center in New York is being recycled to produce steel for use in building construction.
Nearly 20,000 tons of heavy melting scrap, was recently shipped across the globe to Punjab’s main steel town of Mandi Gobindgarh, some 300 kilometres north of Delhi.
The scrap metal will be reprocessed in dozens of furnaces in one of Asia’s biggest steel smelting towns.
Steel from the huge concrete columns that once supported the grand twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York, will now be smelted to construct new buildings across north India.
