SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resource Exchange of America Corporation (OTCBB:RXAC), a Florida-based recycling company, is pleased to announce the latest findings from the World Steel Association.

The World Steel Association has reported that global production for crude steel in August was up 4.2% year on year. The figures – based on 66 countries reporting to the WSA – compare favorably to those of the same month in 2008, before the full impact of the global economic crisis was felt.

"These latest figures confirm what RXAC have been seeing in the market for some time," says Dana Pekas, CEO of REAC. "We find the latest round of global and domestic figures extremely encouraging."

The rate of growth of steel and aluminum shipments from North American metals service centers also rebounded in August, according to the Metals Activity Report from the Metals Service Center Institute.

"As we emerge from the recession, the demand for environmentally-friendly technologies and sustainable industrial alternatives continues to grow," adds Dana. "All the figures point towards continued growth in this sector for the foreseeable future."
