Crane system loads scrap metal into wagon

Scrap is here to stay

Not all scrap is created equal. With our DBscrap-solution programme, we are keeping the steel-recycling chain intact so material will continue flowing to German steel producers. More than 4 million metric tonnes of scrap are returned to blast furnaces this way each year so new products can be made.

 Scrap delivery – fast and secure

  • High degree of flexibility through our regional customer concepts.
  • Fewer diversions to rolling stock weighbridges thanks to weight sensors.
  • Direct trains to Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy ensure reliable supply and disposal.
