BEIJING: As businesses adopt more sustainable practices to satisfy growing demand, the market for recycling scrap metal is expanding rapidly.

A mix of environmental awareness, economic advantages, and growing industries dependent on scrap metals are driving the market forward.

In a recent development, Wen Yonghong, the secretary-general of the Aluminum Working Committee of the Trade and Economic Multifunctional Platform for SCO Countries, led member companies of the organization on a field research visit to the Hyderabad Industrial Zone in Pakistan, as reported by CEN.
