Scholz Holding GmbH

As a leader in the recycling of scrap steel and scrap metal, Scholz Group significantly contributes to the preservation of natural resources and the reduction of environmental pollution. Through the processing of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap, the Scholz Group prevented approximately 12,2 million metric tons of CO2 emissions in 2015. These would have been generated had the metal been obtained from primary raw materials instead of scrap. Furthermore, the energy requirement in recycling is low. The processing of iron and aluminum scrap, for example, requires only ten percent of the energy needed for the production from primary raw materials.

Recycling metal only has advantages. Steel scrap and non-ferrous metal scrap can be recycled any number of times without a reduction in quality. The processed products from Scholz Group are not inferior in any way to those made of primary raw materials. The companies of the Group prove this anew each day, for example with aluminum rolling ingots for foils as thin as a human hair.
