Pioneering Sustainability: How hamma’s Stainless Steel Wire Ropes are Building a Greener Future

Friday 10th November 2023 

In the world where sustainability is not just a trend but a dire necessity, hamma stands out as a beacon of innovation within the wire rope industry. As one of the largest global suppliers, hamma takes pride in its environmentally conscious approach, offering a product line where sustainability and architectural ingenuity meet — the 95% recyclable stainless steel wire rope and fittings.

Sustainability in the Wire Rope Industry

Recent insights from Team Stainless, based on a study by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology published in May 2023, revealed that an average of 95% of stainless steels are recycled at the end of their lifecycle. This staggering figure not only exemplifies the recyclability of stainless steel but also underscores hamma’s commitment to environmental stewardship.

Composition and Lifecycle of Stainless Steel

What sets stainless steel apart in the architectural industry is its remarkable capacity for endless reprocessing. This not only highlights its durability and longevity but also its vital role in diminishing industrial waste. As hamma’s owner and founder, David Sheedy, emphasizes, “Recycling is key to maximizing this precious resource.” The composition of stainless steel allows 70% of it to be reused for new stainless steel production, while 25% is transformed into new carbon steel or special steel products, thus reinforcing the material’s versatility.

The Role of hamma in Promoting Recycling:

At hamma, recycling isn’t just a process; it’s a principle that guides every operation. The organization’s dedication to this principle is evident in every product offered to clients — products that embody both resilience and a sustainable lifecycle.

Circular Economy and Client Benefits

The circular economy is no longer a concept but a concrete reality, thanks to the high recycling rate of stainless steel. “When our clients choose stainless steel for their projects, they are not just getting high-quality products,” says David Sheedy. “They are investing in a sustainable future.” hamma’s products are a testament to a system that prioritizes the continual use of resources, eliminating waste and contributing to a more sustainable world.

Global Impact and Call to Action

The excellent recyclability rate of stainless steel is more than just a number — it’s a clarion call for industries to embrace eco-friendly practices. By integrating stainless steel into their operations, companies can contribute to a sustainable, circular economy, paving the way toward a more responsible future.
