In addition to the main structures, such as steel beams and columns, the most essential thing in a steel structure…
Steel structure material is already a very widely used building material in today’s construction industry. With the acceleration of the country’s urbanization development, the development of the construction industry is also getting faster and faster, so the use of steel structure materials is also increasing. But it has also led to many waste steel structure materials. If the waste steel structure materials are disposed of and discharged randomly, it will cause serious harm to the environment and human health. Therefore, Steel structure recycling and reuse is an economically feasible resource recovery method and greatly contributes to environmental protection.
What are the contributions of steel structure recycling and reuse to environmental protection?
1. Save building materials
When demolishing a steel structure building, recycling old materials can save costs and the budget for construction acceleration. At the same time, Steel structure recycling can also reduce the demand for new materials, minimize market price formation, help alleviate the contradiction between supply and demand, and promote the balanced development of the market.
2. Industrial recycling
A waste steel industry chain involving various industries can be formed for Steel structure recycling, and industrialized reuse can also help increase market competitiveness and efficiency. For example, after treatment, waste steel structure materials can be made into railway tracks, bridge structure materials, steel formwork, etc., which helps to increase industrial output value and also protects the environment.
3. Promote energy saving and emission reduction.
Steel structure recycling and reuse help to save the production and processing of new materials, thereby reducing waste gas and carbon dioxide emissions from energy consumption. At the same time, recycling and reusing old materials are also conducive to reducing environmental pollution caused by steel production and processing, ultimately protecting the environment. Steel can be returned to the furnace and used again, minimizing landfill waste.
Energy saving and emission reduction
1. Steel structure recycling reduces energy consumption.
During the use of steel structure materials, multiple processing procedures are required. These procedures require a large amount of energy consumption. At the same time, industrial pollution, such as waste gas, wastewater, and waste residues, will be generated during the processing process, further aggravating environmental pollution. If old materials are recycled and utilized, energy consumption can be saved, and environmental pollution can be reduced.
2. Reduce the production of new materials.
Since old steel structure materials can be recycled and reused, the production and procurement of new steel can be reduced. Both steel production and procurement consume a lot of energy, occupy a lot of raw materials, and generate a lot of waste gas and wastewater, aggravating energy shortage and environmental pollution. Recycling old steel structure materials can reduce new steel production and environmental pollution.
3. Reduce pollution
Steel structure recycling and reuse can effectively reduce pollution. The production and processing of new steel will produce a lot of waste gas, waste water, waste residue, etc. If not properly treated, these wastes will cause severe pollution to the surrounding environment. If the old steel structure materials are recycled, and the steel is successfully reused, new steel production can be reduced, and environmental pollution can be controlled.
Social Benefits of steel structure recycling and Reuse
1. Increase job opportunities
The industrial utilization of waste steel structure materials is an industry that requires a variety of skills. From the front links, such as collection, classification, and decomposition, to the post-links, such as reprocessing and sales, professional skills and the support of the number of staff are required so that it can increase society. Create more job opportunities and contribute to improving the employment situation.
2. Improve the level of environmental protection.
Steel structure recycling and reuse reduce the waste of resources and environmental pollution and contribute to the natural environment, such as the sky, land, and water resources. Recycling and reusing steel are conducive to promoting the development of the real economy and improving people’s living standards.
3. Raise awareness of environmental protection.
Steel structure recycling and reuse can help raise environmental protection awareness, make people care more about the environment, and participate more actively in ecological protection. In the long run, advancing the sustainable development strategy is very important.
To sum up, the contribution of steel structure recycling and reuse to environmental protection cannot be ignored. In future construction development, more attention should be paid to recycling waste materials to reduce resource waste, reduce environmental pollution, increase employment opportunities, improve people’s living standards, and promote the development of environmental protection.
