Recycling Steel

When it comes to sustainable qualities, its steel’s ability to be recycled that truly separates it from other building materials. Steel is the most recycled material in the world. In fact, more than 650 million metric tons of steel are recycled every year, more than all other materials combined.

Steel is Sustainable Like Farming

The Big Picture

The steel industry has long been an advocate of improving environmental practices when it comes to the production, transportation and construction of steel and steel products. These efforts include transitioning to the electric arc furnace for steel production, off-site prefabrication to minimize waste, and incorporating updated technology to reduce carbon emissions. It’s a focus that extends to each and every stage of the steel life cycle. That’s why steel is considered THE green building material.
