national industry 331492

Secondary Smelting, Refining, and Alloying of Nonferrous Metal (except Copper and Aluminum)

Overview

This U.S. industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in (1) alloying purchased nonferrous metals and/or (2) recovering nonferrous metals from scrap. Establishments in this industry make primary forms (e.g., bar, billet, bloom, cake, ingot, slab, slug, wire) using smelting or refining processes.

The immediate parent of national industry 331492 is international industry 33149: Nonferrous Metal (except Copper and Aluminum) Rolling, Drawing, Extruding, and Alloying
