Since the rapidly increasing requirement of magnesium alloy sheet products in the automobile industry in the past decades, recycling of magnesium scrap from manufacturing processes and end-of-life vehicles becomes significantly urgent for the reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission trough the full product life cycle. The melt conditioned twin roll casting (MC-TRC) process has proven to be an effective and efficient method to disintegrate the oxide films/skins generated on the surface of Mg alloy products into dispersed particles by intensive melt shearing, and thus the oxide particles could act as potent nucleation sites during melt solidification. Due to the enhanced nucleation of α-Mg grains by these discrete oxide particles, direct recycling Mg alloy strip with a fine grained microstructure, elimination of the centreline segregation and insignificant basal texture can be obtained with sound surface quality and proper mechanical properties through the length of strip.
