In several cases scrap processors have set up operations adjacent to or on the generator’s property, resulting in a dedicated recycling facility. This reduces costs and improves the potential for closed-loop recycling, since the alloy content of the scrap sent to the dedicated recycling facility is known and can be easily segregated.
