Busheling, unprepared scrap metal prices

Busheling unprepared is a prime grade of ferrous scrap that originates from metal processing facilities and is consumed by metal producers.

Busheling is clean steel scrap, not exceeding 12 inches in any dimensions, including new factory busheling (for example, sheet clippings, stampings, etc.). It may not include old auto body and fender stock. Also, the metal must not be coated, limed, vitreous enameled or electrical sheet containing over 0.5 percent silicon. This definition is as specified by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries.
