Ferrous Metal vs. Non-Ferrous Metal: What’s The Difference?

There are two types of scrap metal – ferrous and non-ferrous. Ferrous metal contains iron, while non-ferrous metals do not. Non-ferrous metals typically go for a higher price on the scrap metals market and include aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, titanium, brass, and nickel. With metal production on the rise, non-ferrous metals are at a premium. These metals can be recycled indefinitely without losing their structural properties and integrity, so that’s why they’re so attractive to industry manufacturers who are experiencing a global shortage. When it comes to recycling vehicles, there are many parts that are made of non-ferrous metals – for example, wiring harnesses, car batteries, catalytic converters, body frames, and more. On top of being effective in waste reduction, non-ferrous metal recycling results in less pollution, lower energy consumption, and is overall more environmentally friendly than extracting new resources – proving that even a wrecked car can still have value.
