Scrap: Shredded

Generated through shredding pre-existing end goods such as automobiles and appliances. Shredded scrap can also be in steelmaking furnaces, only to a lesser extent than prime. The impurities that the shredded scrap comes with from its previous life as a good, can only be tolerated to an extent to produce prime steel.
