Heavy Melting Steel (HMS) is iron scrap: recyclable steel or wrought iron.
HMS is short material, the maximum dimension 1.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 meters. There are different types of HMS, mainly a distinction is made between HMS 1/2 and HMS 1.
Especially the thickness of the iron is decisive in which category it falls. HMS 1/2 must have a thickness between 3 and 6 mm, HMS 1 minimum 6 mm.
Steel scrap is unique in that it is 100 per cent recyclable – it can be melted and remade into new steel products. Given the high demand for steel scrap, largely from the domestic steel industry, scrap gets easily dealt with.
Steel is, in fact, the most recycled material in the world with scrap accounting for 40 per cent of the global steel production. Steel scrap serves as the primary input into steelmaking through the electric arc furnace and the induction furnace routes .Close to 60 per cent of world crude steel is produced this way. Steel from scrap requires 74 per cent less energy to produce than steel from iron ore and coal. In fact, every tonn of recycled steel saves 1.1 tonnes of iron ore and about half a tonn of coal. Recycled steel also helps reduce CO2 emissions by 58 per cent – as against the otherwise carbon-intensive steel manufacturing process
