Europe’s largest steel sheet pile manufacturers have highlighted that steel piles can be reused between two and ten times without loss of any of their properties. Piles can be extracted from the ground, once they have served their purpose on a project, and can be reused on another site. Should a steel sheet pile have come to the end of its life it is 100% recyclable in an electric arc furnace enabling the material to be transformed into steel products that are of the same or enhanced quality.
