Spanish term or phrase:desestaño
This is from a document about a tin can manufacturer. I have found references to "detinning" as a process, but not as a material that would be subject to valuation. Here's the sentence. TIA!
"El desestaño proviene de las mermas de producción and se valoran como chatarra (ventas de subproducto). El desestaño generado es retirado regularmente por distintos chatarreros."
