Summary

The extended application of magnesium as a structure alloy (housings, parts for vehicles and other structural parts, primarily of the alloy groups AZ, AM and AS) leads to an increasing amount of scrap after product use, the post consumer scrap (PCS). The two most extensive sources for PCS are scrap from flotation plants and dismantling scrap.
