Did you know that CR’s Maryborough Foundry manufacturing process is based almost entirely on the recycling of scrap steel in order to produce new world-class high productivity components for use in the global mining industry? CR recovers a significant volume of scrap steel items from its customers and also recovers all waste steel from its manufacturing process. Nothing steel goes to waste reflecting steel’s endless life cycle and value in society.

Over the last 12 months, Maryborough Foundry produced approximately 1500 tonnes of saleable product that was made 1500 tonnes of waste scrap steel. This represents a positive environmental outcome and it also worth noting that the recycling o scrap steel via an electric arc furnace is a low carbon emission process when compared with other steel-making activities.
