As the worldwide leader in scrap recycling, TIMET recycles thousands of metric tons of chip, feedstock and bulk weldables each year. In fact, scrap approximates 30-50% of our raw material input. All of our melting facilities worldwide are equipped to recycle scrap in various forms.
Recycling is a major priority at TIMET because we’ve seen the results – impressive cost savings and long-term stable supply of raw material. With scrap readily available, TIMET has the ability to blend recycled scrap with virgin sponge and alloys to dramatically lower product costs. Our long-term scrap supply agreements with major global producers provide our customers with a stable supply of titanium into the future.
