How Is Marine-Grade Stainless Steel Recycled?

Although marine-grade stainless steel is a widely used term, it is not an official one. Typically, steel that is designed for marine and coastal environments will be specified as grade 316. Scrapped 316 stainless steel is often highly sought-after by scrap metal buyers. Essentially, 316 stainless steel is a molybdenum alloy which means that it has additional anti-corrosive properties compared with other forms of the metal. When scrap steel of a marine-grade is repurposed, it will often be in extremely good condition because of its lack of rust.
