  • In modern history, the linear economy has been prevalent, with the input of raw materials for processing and use, followed by waste at the other end.
  • Pure iron has a general density of 7.87 g/cm³, a tensile strength of 540 MPa, and a specific heat capacity of 449 J/(kg·K) at 20 degrees Celsius.
  • It has a relatively high density of 19.3 g/cm³ at 20 degrees Celsius, and a high melting point of 1065 degrees Celsius.
