Secondary MaterialThis term traditionally refers to industrial byproducts of a manufacturing process that are used as an ingredient of another manufacturing process to create another product. Traditional usage of the term, secondary material, does not refer to scrap or fragments generated by a manufacturing process and subsequently returned to the same manufacturing process. However, some recent usage of the term, secondary material, contradicts the traditional definition. In some cases the term, secondary material, does include scrap or fragments generated by a manufacturing process and subsequently returned to the same manufacturing process. There is a contradiction between how this term is defined in Section 42002 (f) of the Public Resources Code and in Section 12200 (c) of the Public Contract Code.
