Making new tools from recycled solid carbide requires 70 percent less energy than making them from virgin raw materials. Production from recycled materials means 40 percent less carbon dioxide is emitted. Furthermore, recycling is necessary because in the long run our raw materials are scarce and finite. Estimated reserves of tungsten, for example, are around 7 million tonnes, or 100 years of consumption. Why mine unnecessarily?
