Commonly used in nickel batteries or fused into nickel alloys, recycling nickel scrap metal has been a common practice with one of the highest efficiency yields of all metals. With a large quantity of nickel used in different types of stainless steel, nickel has proven to be a critical component of the recycling industry that serves as a measure for efficiency. With the strength and ductility characteristics of nickel, there are many applications of nickel that are used in almost every industry.
Nickel is often incorporated into alloys that can be used to cover other types of metal or material. Due to this, a large portion of nickel goes into producing stainless steel. Nickel can be found in other products without being an alloy. Nickel electroplating adds corrosion resistance and is also used in a variety of plumbing pipes and fixtures. Lastly, nickel-metal hydride batteries are also a common way to find nickel scrap, especially with advancements in batteries for newer electric vehicles.
